The Iron Lady

Review: The Iron Lady

10 Jan 12

A Tory love story.

I think most people may miss the point of this film. Rather than a biopic of M. Thatcher it is more of a story of the relationship between Margaret and Dennis, the man who propped her up with his undying love even after death. Meryl Streep is extraordinary but it would have been more satisfying for most of us to see a linear tale of Margaret's life. But then, didn't this director also make Mama Mia? If so I rest my case.
