Trailer for Luc Besson’s “The Lady” – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Luc Besson’s “The Lady,” which will have its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, stars Michelle Yeoh as Aung San Suu Kyi, a significant figure in Burma’s political landscape who endured decades of imprisonment and isolation for her pro-democracy activism efforts.

Besson’s film reportedly focuses on Kyi’s love affair with academic and writer Michael Aris, played by the always excellent David Thewlis.

Yahoo Movies is hosting a short teaser, which gives us our first footage and first look at Yeoh as Kyi. We have it below:

And here’s more from the official press release for “The Lady” :
Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endures until the very end. It’s a story of devotion and human understanding set against a backdrop of political turmoil that continues today. ‘The Lady’ was written over a period of three years by Rebecca Frayn. Interviews with key figures in Aung San Suu Kyi’s entourage enabled her to reconstruct for the first time the true story of Burma’s national heroine.

The film doesn’t have an official release date, though you know that if Besson, Yeoh or Thewlis leave TIFF when any sort of awards buzz, we’ll be hearing more about “The Lady” as the season heats up.
