First Look: "The Lady"

With all the talk about certain films being Oscar bait and sure bets for awards consideration, here's some buzz I'd like to start right here and now. Michelle Yeoh,
who we know from such beautiful films as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Memoirs of a Geisha (my personal favorite of hers), headlines next month's biopic, The Lady. Based on the dramatic love story of Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi and her late husband, author Michael Aris, in the midst of political unrest in Tibet in the 1970s and 1980s. Yeoh's resemblance to Kyi is uncanny. The film looks beautiful. Lord knows Luc Besson (Colombiana, La Femme Nikita) knows how to direct a riveting female-led film. I'd say it's a must-see based on this trailer. What do you think? The Lady comes to theaters November 30.

I've been a Michelle Yeoh fan for a good while, I've been looking forward to this for a while.

Saw thsi already. I have problems with the dialogue, editing and characterization but if Michelle Yeoh wanted to campaign, she can get this.
