Luc Besson‘s latest film is something completely new from the writer, director and producer. The Lady stars Michelle Yeoh as Burmese revolutionary leader Aung San Suu Kyi in a true story focusing on the choice she had to make about whether to return to England and nurse her husband, who was dying of cancer, or to carry on fighting for democracy in Burma. The first teaser trailer has been released. Along with it comes the film’s first poster, designed by Shepard Fairey, based on his design featuring the real Aung San Suu Kyi.
TIFF describes it as “At once epic and intimate, disturbing and galvanizing, The Lady celebrates the struggle of a people and the difference that a single strong-willed individual can make in the world”.
