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.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2013 (35 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 45min. First Viewing Meryl Streep could be compelling in a 4hr movie where all she does is take a massive dump, but quite often, a movie is not worth her talent. This is one of those movies. The script is pretty rough, and most of the beats are obvious. Streep would be the only real reason to watch, though I may have preferred to watch the dump movie. "

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

My life in movies (104 movies items)

" 2nd Place: The Iron Lady This movie is based on the life of Margaret Thatcher who was the longest-serving Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of the 20th century. What an amazing and truly extraordinary performance by Meryl Streep. In this movie she is able to show exactly why she is considered as one of the best actresses of our time. Even though the movie might not be 100% historically accurate it is a pleasure to watch. Random Fact: Extensive filming took place at the neogothic Manchest"
