  • 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 have ************ 30 minutes of it. and ready to return it---very backward movie and Meryl Streep should have never agreed to do this one...HORRIBLE

    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.
