About The Iron Lady

This drama tells the story of Margaret Thatcher and her rise to power, from her marriage to Denis Thatcher to her time as a politician. Margaret (Meryl Streep) knows that she is an outsider due to her gender, but works her way through the ranks, from MP to Secretary of State For Education And Science to eventual Prime Minister. Her shortcomings as a leader are well documented, but this film should also bring her achievements and personal crises into focus. Streep does an uncanny impression, and is reunited with director Phyllida Lloyd who previously made 'Mamma Mia' in a film surely hoping to replicate the success of recent Oscar-baiting Britpics such as The King's Speech and The Queen. Jim Broadbent plays the understanding husband and Richard E. Grant plays Michael Heseltine.
