Since film fans first heard of the casting of Meryl Streep as the former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, all were abuzz. Are you kidding me -- the Oscar winner as the first female PM in Britain’s history? Cue the Oscar talk! The Iron Lady poster premiere only further fanned that fire. And judging by the first trailer from The Iron Lady, it is more than warranted.
Streep nails nuances better than any actress of her generation and any since. The powerful story that is Maggie Thatcher’s is one worthy of a biopic to say the least. We are counting the days until December 30 when the film bows in U.S. theaters.
