Episodic whitewash of the villainous Thatcher.

User review rating: 2 August 20, 2012

i loved meryl streeps' performance but the movie fell terribly short. there was far too much emphasis on her dementia. i would have preferred to see the struggle for the rise to power as well as her actual prime ministership as well. great performance by streep but i don't think she should have won the oscar over viola davis.

amazing movie! for people who gave it low ratings and bad comments, you are crazy!! she won an oscar and the movie was bomb.

streep is above average in this movie.....but the movie itself is far below average. slow and dull.

this film had an interesting structure, excellent acting and use of make-up to help streep span decades of thatcher's life. very well done!

other than streep's acting being good, not even sure why they made this movie! zzzzzzzzz

this movie is a slam dunk for five stars!!! i enjoyed this film immensely. meryl streep as done it again. what a magnificent talent in the craft of acting!!

to play the power house lady you need a powerful actress - meryl streep does this movie a great justice - i learned more about the history of thatcher from this movie than in all my history classes and reading! well done - she deserves an oscar nod at least.

while streep was...well streep, the movie lacked any creativity and style. in short, it was boring.

User review rating: 5 February 20, 2012

meryl is brilliant as margaret thatcher. the movie does not intend to just be a biopic. bravo to lloyd and morgan for looking at thatcher through the present - dimentia is a part of life. and so kudos for exploring it with sensitivity and still presenting the world of an important political figure in the twentieth century - a woman who was not afraid to change the world.

depressing and disappointing. more about dementia in her later years than her success as a politician.

User review rating: 3 February 13, 2012

an interesting movie about dementia and how it can affect all of us...not really a movie about thatcher. streep was amazing.

User review rating: 1 February 11, 2012

this movie is about dementia not margaret thatcher. the leftist hated margaret thatcher and hate her even now. less than 10 minutes of the movie is about the challenges she faced and her achievements

User review rating: 2 February 06, 2012

streep never fails, but the movie does!

User review rating: 2 February 01, 2012

loved streep's performance...but she deserved did thatcher herself. the movie was a huge let-down. poorly written and crafted. a wasted performance by streep.

User review rating: 3 January 29, 2012

tour de force acting on meryl streeps part plus the makeup that went on...incredible. but the movie itself is not great. she deserves an oscar though.

User review rating: 2 January 29, 2012

although the movie contains one of the best performances of our generation - streep as margaret thatcher is brilliant, the movie is a bit of a let down.

User review rating: 5 January 29, 2012

great character, great acting, great movie.

User review rating: 2 January 28, 2012

did not like the movie - streep was great but the movie was disappointing and at times depressing. it focused on the present day and thatcher's dementia and hallucinations, there was a limited focus on her career.

User review rating: 3 January 24, 2012

streep was great stoty weak too much old footage

User review rating: 2 January 24, 2012

the story didn't explain her political career at all. very disappointing.

User review rating: 5 January 24, 2012

excellent! oscar for streep.

User review rating: 2 January 21, 2012

acting was exception. story was disappointing. to much time spent on margaret's dementia. thought it would be about her magnificent career. i think her family would not be happy about this movie.

fantastic movie! did not want it to end

Academy award for Meryl Streep.

User review rating: 0 January 15, 2012

Meryl Streep was brilliant in portraying Thatcher.. movie was very interesting and informative. Only set back for me , was that too much time went into Thatcher's later years rather than her rising political career and her years in office, none the less worth the admission

User review rating: 5 January 14, 2012

Meryl is excellent in personifying Margareth Thatcher. I am fascinated by her determination and courage in leading her party and eventually the country. She is the best of the best !
