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.

I might be in the minority here, but I would pr... read more

“This film is mostly propaganda glorifying Margaret Thatcher and trying to get the audience to empathize with her while demonizing the working class hurt by her terrible policies that are hurting United States and British citizens today. I will credit the movie did offer the consequences of her policies, and the police brutality.” read more
