Overview

Synopsis

The Lady
Director Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, The Professional) teams with screenwriter Rebecca Frayn to tell the true-life story of Burmese pro-democracy activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi (Michelle Yeoh), whose marriage to husband Michael Aris (David Thewlis) endured even after Kyi was placed under house arrest by her government for nearly 15 years. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Queen Margot
The historical novel by Alexandre Dumas was adapted for the screen with this lavish French epic, winner of 5 Césars and a pair of awards at the Cannes Film Festival. Isabelle Adjani stars as Marguerite de Valois, better known as Margot, daughter of scheming Catholic power player Catherine de Medici (Virna Lisi). Margot is an heiress to the throne during the late 16th century reign of the neurotic, hypochondriac King Charles IX (Jean-Hugues Anglade), a time when Protestants and Catholics are vying for political control of France. Catherine decides to make an overture of good will by offering up Margot in marriage to prominent Protestant Huguenot Henri of Navarre (Daniel Auteuil), although she also schemes to bring about the notorious St. Bartholomew's Day massacre of 1572, when tens of thousands of Protestants are slaughtered. The marriage goes forward but Margot doesn't love Henri and takes a lover, the soldier La Mole (Vincent Perez), also a Protestant from a well-to-do family. Murders by poisoning follow, as court intrigues multiply and Catherine's villainous plotting to place her son Anjou (Pascal Greggory) on the throne threatens the lives of La Mole, Margot and Henri. The American release version was cut to 145 minutes. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Les Soeurs Bronte
The Bronte sisters are profiled in this biography. The film dramatizes the repressed Victorian lives of the three famed authors who all died young. Their writing, so full of life, was a total contrast to the reality of their existence, focused mostly upon arguing with their father and taking care of their younger brother. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Liberator
The story of Simon Bolivar (Edgar Ramirez) and his struggle against the Spanish Empire in South America in the name of liberty for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
