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.

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.
