Theatrical Trailer for Luc Besson's 'The Lady' - the true story of Aung San Suu Kyi

Is this going to be any good?

The second (and full) trailer for Luc Besson's The Lady has just been released, and although the story (that of Aung San Suu Kyi) is undoubtedly important, and Michelle Yeoh (as the titular character) is a great actress, I had my reservations about the director of movies like The Professional and The Fifth Element pulling off a serious historical drama like this.  The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September, and I initially got the impression that it was really good.  However, it now seems my above fears may be justified, as most complaints indicate that the film adaptation does not do the story justice.

Oh well, check out the trailer below. It is decent.
