Michelle Yeoh is Luc Besson's The Lady

Director Luc Besson's latest movie, The Lady, is upon us and is set for an April 12th release in theaters. Once again it looks to have a strong female lead, with Michelle Yeoh playing a woman's search for independence during the Burmese democratic revolution. The Lady also stars David Thewlis. Below I have stills and the trailer for you to check out, not to mention the striking poster above.

The Lady is the extraordinary story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband, Michael Aris. It is also the epic story of the peaceful quest of the woman who is at the core of Burma's democracy movement. Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endures until the very end.
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.
