Not a word about Meryl Streep's stunning performance in The Iron Lady? There were things the movie skipped over I would have liked to see, and I could have done with less of the nostalgia parts, but Streep was absolutely perfect. It's especially remarkable considering her own politics are just the opposite of Margaret Thatcher's.
Andrew, didn't you say you were NOT going to see the movie? A pity, because I'd like to know how accurate it was. In the film, Thatcher just sort of turned into a dragon overnight, and I couldn't buy that. It had to be a long time building, but we weren't shown that happening.
