Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Paralyzes history and human drama with relentless hagiography.
Rotten: "I don't like this cult of personality," Suu Kyi tells her husband on the patio. The Lady, on the other hand, is all for it.
Rotten: "The Lady" presents a stately, rather dull portrayal of a loving marriage stymied by the whims of political necessity and fascist generals.
Rotten: "The Lady" is a two-hour trip into earnestness, from which audiences will want a little liberation of their own.
I don't get the critics. Usually I am in line with rotten tomatoes but this time I have to disagree. We watched this movie in summer and it is incredible. Yes, Suu Kyi does not like cult of personality – but this movie is sort of more about her husband and his dedication to support his wife.
Very very good!!!!!!
I love everything Michelle yeoh does, have not seen one bad movie!!!
