Reservations are strongly advised at www.theflicks-cambodia.com
(132 min, biography, drama)
This is the story of Aung San Suu Kyi (greatly played by Michelle Yeoh) and her husband, Michael Aris (David Thewlis). 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 background of political turmoil which continues today. The Lady also is the story of the peaceful quest of the woman who is at the core of Burma’s democracy movement.
We would recommend this film to anyone as essential viewing, whether or not you have an interest in political affairs or not. The politics in The Lady are so simply set out and self- explanatory that anyone would understand the issues at hand and understand Burma.
