Editorial Reviews

THE IRON LADY is a surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher (Two-time Oscar® winner 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.

Customer Reviews

Meryl Streep's performance was remarkable!
Aussie Allan
I don't mind knowing that Margaret Thatcher is suffering from dementia - it is a fact and is not out of place in a story about her life.
Linda R. Hendrex
It was one of those movies, you know the kind, where you can tell right away it isn't going to get better.
C. J. Bruner

I saw this movie last night and I was looking forward to seeing it. I don't count myself as a fan of Thatcher's politics, but I do admire her as a person. She had an important role in the fall of the Soviet states and in transforming the American political role in the world. Therefore, I hoped to enjoy a biographical movie that of course would include much of the usual literary license that is part of the Hollywood operation.

What I got, though, left me empty. The role of Thatcher was certainly well performed by Streep and there is nothing for me to add from what others have stated and will state. I'm sure she will obtain another Oscar nomination. If that is all that interests you in movie going, then enjoy! But for those of you with more of an intellectual side, I would suggest waiting for the DVD to rent.

The central problem I believe is that the makers wanted to portray the strong, independent woman, but I have to believe that they dislike her politics and they could not allow a movie viewer the opportunity to agree with the conservatism of Thatcher-especially in a presidential election year. They missed no chance to attach a failure (implied or factual) for any Thatcher success and if that wasn't enough, they portrayed her as a lonely, dementia suffering, old woman for whom time has left behind and for whom the political world has completely forgotten. Here is what troubled me the most; this is a movie about an important political ally for whom one would be ashamed to show the movie to that person. Well, one Should be ashamed anyways.

What also troubles me is that Streep has too much say so in her movies at this stage of her career. She should have stepped in and said, "Enough with these hallucinations, let's show more of this woman's actual career!" Too bad she did not.

I saw The Iron Lady right before it was widely released, and felt that expectations that Meryl Streep's performance would be incredible were fully justified. Having seen her in many roles, this was not surprising--she's widely regarded as one of the greatest living actresses--but her transformation here into an elderly woman, including the accent, the makeup, the attitudes and personality, is nothing short of astonishing. Thatcher's very conservative politics and abrasive manner are of course very controversial--and this portrayal of them is very timely. To be sure, if you're very sympathetic to Thatcher's politics, you may find this portrayal of her unsympathetic or even offensive; some clearly have. But regardless of the viewer's politics, I can't imagine anyone watching this and not feeling he or she has seen something remarkable.

The story of Thatcher's life is told through a series of flashbacks experienced by the woman long after she left office as the British prime minister with the longest tenure of the 20th century, and its first woman PM. We see how she entered politics, met her husband, rose to power, earned the Iron Lady nickname, and was pushed from office by her own party. For those unfamiliar with her life and politics, it's educational, at least superficially. An attempt is made to deviate from the straightforward biopic format by having Thatcher's mind failing during her old age, resulting in hallucinations about her deceased husband punctuating the film. This device is effective, but still, this is not a great film. It's a not-quite-conventional movie about the life of one historical figure, made interesting primarily by Streep's stunning ability to inhabit her subject, and thereby not only cause us to appreciate Streep's art, but also feel at least a little compassion for an aging woman no longer in power.

Format: DVD
This was the worst lost opportunity. So much of the movie was spent in her present day dementia talking to her late husband Dennis. The Cold War was not even covered except a shot of her dancing with Reagan! We get it - the artistic license to illustrate how we can miss a truly great person in a store and only see an old woman. Got it. Could have illustrated that in 4 mins. Instead it became the most boring time spent with a woman we don't know in her apartment. The point of a movie is to TELL A STORY. Not ramble about in present day - we can do that at the mall. And this is one of the most exciting stories of recent times! This woman lead a REMARKABLE life. Yet, you could not find ONE event in the Cold War to cover? You could not spend more time in her years in Parliament? It was so boring. Last year's King's Speech illustrates all that this movie is not - do not stray from the story. Just chronologically move through the storyline. The story is already powerful - let it speak for itself. It is Oscar material and they missed the mark. And Meryl Streep was AMAZING. But she could not save the boring travesty that this script reveals. The screenwriters on this film should never work in this industry again. One of the WORST. I wish I could get my ticket price and 2 hours back.

UPDATE - April 8, 2013: I just wanted to take a moment to remember the real Margaret Thatcher, who died today. She was a great lady and I do hope that her strength, integrity and huge contributions to history will be remembered truthfully and fairly.

I so agree with what Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said regarding the senate resolution honoring Lady Thatcher, "Let me just say that Margaret was one of the most influential and revolutionary figures of the 20th century, and failing to name her achievements would do her memory and her legacy a great disservice. It would be unheard of to commemorate Churchill for example and ignore his heroic role in steering his countrymen through the battle of Britain, nor would we think of honoring Lincoln without mentioning the Civil War," McConnell said. He added: "Let's acknowledge the enormity of what she accomplished. Let's mention her achievements by name and the resolution does that because we owe her a tribute equal to her legacy."

Truer words were never spoken, and this sentiment very aptly applies to the movie THE IRON LADY. May she Rest In Peace. ~Linda~

ORIGINAL REVIEW - April 15, 2012: I cannot understand what they were thinking! An opportunity to make a movie about one of the MOST FASCINATING AND INFLUENTIAL WOMEN OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. The greatest actress of our generation playing the lead. And this opportunity is squandered on a ditzy, artsy-fartsy script that examines the whole thing through the fictional fantasy lens of and elderly Margaret Thatcher's demented flashbacks - as if anyone actually knows what is really going on in the mind of a person with dementia. What a waste.

It started out OK.
