Written over a period of three years by Rebecca Frayn. The Lady is the extraordinary story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband, Michael Aris.
Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, the couple’s love endures until the very end in this story of devotion and human understanding.
Frayn interviewed key figures in Aung San Suu Kyi’s entourage to reconstruct the true story of Burma’s national heroine.
The film stars Michelle Yeoh and David Thewlis and will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 30th December 2011
