One of the movies to come out of the Toronto film festival is THE LADY. It did not win any of the TIFF awards but Michelle Yeoh received a lot of attention for her portrayal of pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi who returned from England to her homeland and took up the campaign for democracy. It chronicles the personal sacrifices Suu Kyi made to remain in Myanmar. Cohen Media bought the rights to distribute it in the US. They have every intention of promoting Yeoh for a Best Actress nomination.
Below is the teaser trailer for THE LADY.
