Is it Clooney versus the field?
David Thewlis, "The Lady"
Pro: As Michael Aris, Thewlis plays the husband of Burmese democratic freedom fighter and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi (Michelle Yeoh). Aris spent over a decade trying to help his wife escape house arrest. Thewlis actually has more screen time than Yeoh and arguably more of an arc with his role. He received impressive notices for a film...
Con:…that overall didn't fare well with critics. While the story of Aung San Suu Kyi is compelling and tragic, the picture is a stiff and conventional biopic. That hurts him the most.
