I gave this full marks for Streep's performance; aspects of the film's structure were not very interesting.

Meryl Streep is great, no surprise there. What is a surprise is how forgettable this film (and performance) is.

I add this movie in my "Top War" list because it have relationship with a war for me. But definitely this is a drama, biography movie.

Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher and Jim Broadbent as Denis Thatcher. It portrayed the first female prime minister in UK who has a strained relationship with her daughter and mother. Live video footage's, flashbacks and a mixture of both were utilized in the style of Forrest Gump. The picture's score and and outstanding performance of Streep were noticeable. She is the only reason to view this film. Its direction however was unstructured and usage of frames on top of each scene was confusing instead of presenting everything chronologically. The Iron Lady is a descent look at the life of Margaret Thatcher the film's lackluster effort in depicting her in a lighter note.

Streep - simply the best

An okay script and film is strengthened by a huge performance by Meryl Streep, who embodies Margaret Thatcher so much there were times I thought I was actually looking at Thatcher herself. It's not just the look she gets down, but also the voice, mannerisms, and posture to a point where the line between the two gets thin. While the previews make it look like a biopic, the film is actually a drama of an older Thatcher, struck with dementia, being reminded of certain points in her career. As a result, you get a more intimate portrayal of Thatcher rather than just a film about her accomplishments. Some may not like this, the dementia is never addressed and thus, if you don't know she's suffering from it, you might think Thatcher went crazy. As someone who follows politics regularly though, I...
