In her twilight years, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep) reflects on her life and career as she finally prepares to dispose of the belongings of her late husband, Denis (Jim Broadbent). Daughter of a Grantham grocer, she successfully broke through a double-paned glass ceiling of gender and class. Thatcher became the first female prime minister of the United Kingdom and remained as such for 11 consecutive years, until declining popularity forced her to resign.

    Must see movie! The critics have given it a low rating - ignore them!!! The movie has a strong conservative, anti-union message that has those with opposing political views trashing it. Margaret Thatcher saved England from self destruction by making hard and necessary choices and not backing down when less courageous people would have her do so. It's important to learn from history and this movie carries a message especially relevant today.

    Meryl Streep did an exceptional job, but I did not like the way the movie was written. I was expecting to see a powerhouse woman and her influence on society. Instead, they portrayed Margaret Thatcher during her most embarrassing and humiliating times-battling dementia. Her story of rising amongst the men was merely a "flashback" you experienced on occasion. There was also a brief footage of a topless woman! Total shock and disappointment; I don't care if it was live footage, it was unnecessary.

    What a movie ladies and gentlemen, Meryl Streep so deserved the Oscar! Very nice plot , movie sequence, the Margaret Thatcher character was amazing. I enjoyed watching her in her older dementia years and her years as a prime minister. The Dennis Thatcher character was a very good supporting character. I really liked the coming back and forth to past and present; it kept me engaged the whole time. it helped me understand history, since I was a child during her time in office. Loved the scenery, make up and costume. A definite must see for adults. Caution on children on certain scenes, mostly nudity, violence and gore.

    Acting by Streep was superb. Film seemed interminable, however. I love history, but this barely captured my attention. Probably historically accurate, but just not engaging to me.
