The Lady (2011)

Directed by: Luc Besson
Country: France

Plot: The story of Aung San Suu Kyi as she becomes the core of Burma's democracy movement, and her relationship with her husband, writer Michael Aris.
Quick comment: Suu Kyi is an example to follow regarding resistance to tyranny all over the world. However this movie wasn't so captivating as it should be. In the first 30 minutes has shown some suspense and no idle moments but soon softened with the help of a repetitive oriental score throughout the film. I was pleased to know more about this woman but the movie didn't impress me. Worth watching taking into account the information provided.
