Ha, Andrew, we kind of picked up on that. But Rita put her finger on one of the weak spots of the movie. For most of the film Thatcher is shown as charismatic and sympathetic, and then without any preparation she turns into an autocratic monster. There's one particularly painful scene, in a meeting with her ministers, in which she utterly humiliates a long-time supporter, Geoffrey Howe (beautifully played by Anthony Head). Even worse, she doesn't even notice he is humiliated, nor is she aware of the shocked silence of her other ministers. Totally wrapped up in herself. A good scene, but out of key with anything that preceded it.
