Meryl Streep & Jean Dujardin with their Oscar
250 Film Challenge
4. The Iron Lady (Phyllida Lloyd, 2011) ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
“If you want to lead the party, lead it! If you want to lead this country, lead it!.”
Meryl Streep portrays a brilliant Margaret Tatcher in Phyllida Lloyd’s new film. Although it is a bit confusing because of the flashbacks, the cast is terrific, specially a more than funny Jim Broadbent as Mr.Tatcher. Despite the political ideology of this important character, the film’s main theme is the revolution led by a woman determined to enter a man’s world. Meryl Streep, the Oscar is yours!
