USA – Peter Webber – 1 hr 46 min
When General MacArthur becomes the de facto ruler of Japan after WWII, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture to covertly investigate the looming question: should the Emperor, worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved? The General assigned with that task is then caught between political intrigue and his own impassioned search for the mysterious school teacher who drew him to Japan. A grand historical drama rarely seen these days. With Tommy Lee Jones and Matthew Fox.
