MOVIE REVIEW

Portraying a little known but pivotal part of world history, Emperor tells the story of the audacious actions of General Douglas MacArthur as he sought to maintain peace in postwar Japan.  With many of Japan's government figures already executed for war crimes, MacArthur had to decide what role Emperor Hirohito played in the war and if he too should be put to death.  The honorary and revered head of the proud nation, the Emperor was a figure shrouded in mystery; even after the war ended he remained closed away behind his palace walls.  No Americans were allowed to meet or even question the man.  Faced with deciding the future of Japan, MacArthur (played by Tommy Lee Jones) enlists General Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox) to covertly investigate the emperor and determine his fate.
