Synopsis

Luc Besson directs this chronicle of the "Steel Orchid" - Burmese pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. After 15 years of house arrest and continual harassment from the authorities, Aung (Michelle Yeoh) - with the support of her Oxford academic husband Michael Aris (David Thewlis) - still calmly persists in her hope for a truly democratic country. The two leads deliver strong, sympathetic performances while Besson's ravishing visuals strike an ironic counterpoint to the bullying oppression of the ruling junta.
