The Lady is a 2011 biopic about Nobel Prize Laureate and freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi, played by Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), who gave hope to the Burmese people that democracy would one day replace the brutal military regime that still occupies the country to this day. David Thewlis (War Horse, Harry Potter) plays her late husband, Doctor Michael Aris, who worked long and hard while being forcefully separated from his wife, to bring her struggle as well as the struggle of the Burmese people to world attention.
