The Iron Lady

Never Compromise.
What it's about:

The compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman.

What the critics thought:

"Streep's performance overpowers the movie it's in - a perfectly executed triple axel that renders everything else just featureless ice."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post


"Streep's performance is so true and so uncannily accurate, so full and so complete in its understanding, that she is fascinating every second she is onscreen."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"If the idea is to humanise the woman, it's rather wasted. If there's one thing Margaret Thatcher won't be remembered for, it's her humanity."
- Wendy Ide, Uncut Magazine
