Streep was as solid as iron but the film was not.

The most important thing to understand about The Iron Lady before watching it is that it’s not aiming to only appeal to those part of the Conservative Party that Margaret Thatcher led for so many years, and nor does one have to like her to get full enjoyment out of this film. Meryl Streep chosen for the role of Thatcher is literally like fate meets the eye as one of the most powerful film actres... read more

I maintain that Meryl Streep should not have been given an Academy Award nomination for The Iron Lady. How dare I! And I would tend to agree. Streep never turns in a half-assed or bad performance, and her technique is beyond words. And, yes, she is a paragon, a veritable living monument to what great acting can be, should be, and is. But the film fails to completely use her as a resource. Granted,... read more

Whilst I was engaged by Streep and Broadbent's performance, the film is horribly flawed. A lack of focus on a particular aspect of Thatcher's life makes for a disjointed mess of a film. Many key characters of Thatacher's administration are underused, such as Anthony Head. We seem to see an image of Thatacher that just didn't quite happen in that way. I might be in the minority here, but I would pr... read more

An elderly Margaret Thatcher talks to the imagined presence of her recently deceased husband as she struggles to come to terms with his death while scenes from her past life, from girlhood to British prime minister, intervene.

Meryl Streep is brilliant as Margaret Thatcher!

“'The Iron Lady' is known to be one of Meryl Streep's best performances! Definitely! The film has also received mixed reviews, disagree! This is one of the best movies 2011 has to offer! Meryl Streep is brilliant as Margaret Thatcher and the storytelling is very well told! Definitely a great must-see masterpiece!” read more

An average movie

“Honestly, I never liked Margaret Thatcher. I would go even further by saying that she pretty much embodied the political ideas I despised. Still, it doesn’t mean a movie about her should be uninteresting. In the contrary, she is basically the only woman who managed to have such an impact on British political history, hell, in world political history. Unfortunately, the whole thing was poorly structured and misguided from the start which is hardly surprising when since they thought it was a good idea to hire the director of ‘Mamma Mia!’. Indeed, who cares that she was some lonely senile lady at the end of her life? I mean, we will pretty much all end up like this and I thought it was really unfair to portray one of the toughest women that ever lived in such disposition. Same thing abo” read more

The Grocer's Daughter

“I think that "The King's Speech" is a decent movie, and so is this. It's more watchable than "Lincoln", at least, which is a 19th-century quasi-biblical affair. And, as much as I prefer the Cinderella side of life, even Disney is not iron-fisted about what is and is not a Princess thing, if that makes sense. (And, she wasn't Queen, so....)

And the side of it on her husband and the state of her mental health.... was possible to relate to, I think.

And you have to give her some credit for saving Britain from anarchy, of course.

Although I still prefer the White Album. It's complicated.

" The Untruth: Can you help us with our crossword? Four down: ‘highly regarded Prime Minister of 1980s Britain. Hard but fair.’ Sixteen letters? We're drawing a blank. Let’s watch this film about Margaret Thatcher while we think about it. The Truth: The film was not made solely for British audiences. Thatcher is seen as an iconic figure around the world, especially in the States. While Meryl Streep’s performance is excellent the former Prime Minister’s reputation in the UK is st"
