The Iron Lady

"The Iron Lady" is a surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher, 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.

The best way to appreciate the high-ludicrousness of Meryl Streep’s Margaret Thatcher might be to watch “The Iron Lady’’ with the sound down. All the scenes with Streep as prime minister seem like deliberate slow motion. She makes such insinuating eye contact that even to return her gaze leaves you feeling inadequate, judged. With this kind of acting you don’t even need silent-movie titles; her carriage says it all. Everything Streep does here is a seismic act of theater. If she so much as tilts her head, the earth tilts with it. She doesn’t simply overwhelm this thin historic biography - and the other actors around her - she detonates it.
