The Iron Lady

She was probably Britain’s most controversial prime minister. And there’s a fantastic film about her life.

Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher.

The Iron Lady is a 2011 biopic starring Meryl Streep (as Margaret Thatcher) and Jim Broadbent (as Thatcher’s husband). It’s directed by Phyllida Lloyd. The film is set in the present day, several years after the death of Thatcher’s husband, Denis. The ex-British prime minister is shown as an elderly lady, living alone and suffering from dementia. In the film, while she’s sorting out her husband’s belongings, the memories come flooding back, and her life and career are shown in flashbacks.
