In her twilight years, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep) reflects on her life and career as she finally prepares to dispose of the belongings of her late husband, Denis (Jim Broadbent).

  • The sharp economy of Lloyd's direction allows the incontestably great Streep to take impressionistic snatches of a life and build a woman in full. This is acting of the highest order. show more

  • Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher is the main reason to see The Iron Lady, which was directed by Phyllida Lloyd - not just the main reason but the raison d'ĂȘtre of an otherwise misconceived movie. show more

  • Yea or nay, love or hate, the portrait that Streep delivers in Phyllida Lloyd's impressionistic biopic is astonishing. show more

    I rarely see a film with an an actor known to me that I don\'t SEE that actor as acting a role. The makeup and acting in this movie was so superb as to fool my mind\'s eye into thinking that I was actually watching Margret Thatcher play herself. EXCELLENT!

    I thought it a waste of time and of M.Streep\'s talent.
