    First Look At Luc Besson's Aung San Suu Kyi Biopic 'The Lady'; David Thewlis Joins Cast

    Film Is Being Made Without Aung San Suu Kyi's PermissionAung San Suu Kyi has become an icon for democratic freedom. After spending fifteen years under house arrest in Burma after leading the National League for Democracy in an election victory of the ruling military junta in 1990, her struggle gained international attention and last month, she was finally released from house arrest.

'Material' marks the first collaboration between her and the brilliant thespian Isabelle Huppert, and we had the cha...

Externalized effortlessly by the great Isabelle Huppert, the two prove to be a force to be reckoned with in this atmosph...
