The Lady

US street artist Shepard Fairey, who created the famous Hope poster of Barack Obama (CLICK), has made this poster for Luc Besson's new film The Lady about Burmese pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. If it seems a poor likeness of Ms Suu Kyi, that's because Shepard made it fit actress Michelle Yeoh, who plays Ms Suu Kyi in the movie. I must admit I can't imagine this as a Luc Besson vehicle. The Lady premieres at the Toronto Film Festival next month (title link).
