The Last Emperor
Peking, 1908: A three-year-old boy is removed from his home and his mother and is carried through the night to the Forbidden City, the heart of China. His name is Pu Yi and his abduction will alter China's history forever. Despite its cast of thousands, its palatial and exotic locations, and its sumptuous designs, the film remains an intimate portrait of an extraordinary and unique man and his journey of self-discovery.
