  • 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

  • Imagine a biopic about Ronald Reagan that leaves out Gorbachev but instead dramatizes his years with Alzheimer's, and you'll get an idea of this film's misplaced focus. show more

  • It's hard to rationalize the vision of this dotty elderly woman with the tough-minded politician. The story lacks insight, glosses over key political issues and is unworthy of Streep's masterful performance. 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.
