About The Lady
The Lady is one of the greatest love stories set against a background of political turmoil which continues today. Based upon the true lives of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband Michael Aris, The Lady offers a behind-the-headlines glimpse into the private lives of an extraordinary couple who gave up their happiness at great cost when Suu Kyi’s country called upon her.
The Lady stars Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The World Is Not Enough) and David Thewlis (Naked, Harry Potter), was directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Subway) and written by award-winning novelist, screenwriter and documentary maker Rebecca Frayn (Who’s Baby). The Lady was produced by Europacorp and Left Bank Pictures.
