  • Conclusion: Though Meryl Streep gives a strong performance, The Iron Lady still manages to be a bit weak as a film. I don't know enough about Margaret Thatcher to be able to say whether this dramatization does her justice, but the only way it could is if her life was jumpy, vague, and dull.

  • Conclusion: Margret Thatcher's family is said to be disappointed with the Prime Minsiter's portrayal in The Iron Lady . Whatever their own reasons may be, it's clear even to an outsider that the film fails to prioritize its narrative, telling a story of an aged, senile, and hallucinatory Thatcher and only...

The Iron Lady Review

DoBlu
30 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Iron Lady opens with Margaret Thatcher shoved aside in a convenience store while trying to purchase milk. What seems so insignificant becomes the mental downfall which drives the film. Burdened by the loss of her husband, she hallucinates, bringing him back to life in her own mind.

  • Summary: As much as I loved Streep's performance of Thatcher in decline, I found myself wanting more of the Iron Lady and less of the rusted-out one.

Confused and delusional, she sees (and converses with) her deceased husband, Dennis (Jim Broadbent); though still smart and...

  • Excerpt: The historical-figure-as-puppet-of-the-past trend that carried through W. (George W. Bush: mostly motivated by daddy issues) and J. Edgar (J. Edgar Hoover: mostly motivated by mommy issues) continues unabated with The Iron Lady , a disappointing look at Margaret Thatcher that never explores the...
