Determined and decisive
on March 13, 2015
Meryl Streep earned an academy award for her portrayal of England's Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. Well directed and candid in it's political
perceptions, the "grocer's daughter" rose from the common ranks and achieved great measures of political success and respect. Parliament
however betrayed her at every turn and dismissed her literally when tides changed against her. A quite accurate portrait of caste-system, snobbery
and resentment of an "outsider." Jim Broadbent is quite accomplished and wholly effective in the role of Margaret Thatcher's husband. The
presence of Ronald Reagan should have been brought into the film however, as they were goof friends and worked well together. Here, Reagan is seen only in a brief newsreel flash. This exclusion does take away much from the film. However, it is still a reasonably good film and worth watching. The fantasy-scene flashbacks may prove confusing to some viewers. Here, it is a matter of individual taste and perception. Good film.
