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 preferred Davis to have won the Oscar.
The more I think about this film...the more I get annoyed
