IMDb 6.5

“Emperor” is a historical drama film that was released in 2012. The film was directed by Peter Webber and stars Matthew Fox, Tommy Lee Jones, and Eriko Hatsune.

The film is set in post-World War II Japan and follows General Douglas MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones) as he prepares to make decisions about the future of Japan. MacArthur is tasked with deciding whether or not Emperor Hirohito (Takatarô Kataoka) should be tried as a war criminal for his role in the war.

As MacArthur and his team investigate Hirohito’s actions, they meet with resistance from the Japanese people and government officials who are reluctant to turn over their emperor to the American authorities. However, MacArthur is determined to uncover the truth and make the right decision, even if it means going against his own country’s interests.

Matthew Fox plays General Bonner Fellers, a member of MacArthur’s team who becomes romantically involved with a Japanese woman named Aya (Eriko Hatsune). As Fellers tries to navigate his feelings for Aya and his duty to his country, he begins to uncover secrets about Hirohito’s involvement in the war.
