Matthew Fox plays General Bonner Fellers, under General MacArthur’s command in Emperor (watch it on Netflix). Based on true events, the movie focuses on the short period when Gen. MacArthur oversees the surrender of Japan. Released by Lakeshore Records, the film score by Composer Alex Heffes (The Last King of Scotland, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) tastefully captures the emotions and the essence of this monumental period in history.
The period drama, set during the immediate aftermath of World War II, is centered around the investigation of Emperor Hirohito’s involvement in Japan’s military decisions. During the 10 days allotted to General Fellers’ investigation, he also tries to search for his long-lost college love, Aya (played by Eriko Hatsune), whom he fears may have died.
