The film is more about the effects of ageing rather than a history of Mrs Thatcher political life. Meryl Streep’s portrail of Mrs Thatcher is fantastic and it is difficult to see anyone beating her to the Oscar. Overall the film is only average to good but it is worth seeing for Streep’s performance.

Darn good film. Meryl Streep's portrayal is breathtaking. Can't help feeling what a Prime Minister we lost when she was stabbed in the back by the gutless wonders in her cabinet. Poor old gal. Would this film have been made about the Queen's Father whilst he was dying of cancer or Winston Churchill when his health was failing - probably not - but Maggie's a woman - so it's o.k. would be my guess. No sensitivity when it comes to the fast buck!
