The Iron Lady - Movie Synopsis & Plot
"The Iron Lady" is a surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep), the first and only female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. One of the 20th century's most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male dominated world.
Objectively, Meryl Streep is the greatest actress in the history of cinema. She has been nominated for 17 Academy Awards. She's won twice. What few people realize is that her last win was for Sophie's Choice
, 30 years ago. She is so good that people take her for granted, shrug off her performances as "typical Meryl Streep" good. With The Iron Lady
, her "losing" streak should come to an end, as she has even outdone herself. Read our Iron Lady, The movie review »
