After a lifetime making the most difficult decisions for her country 'The Iron Lady of the west world' has to face the most terrible blow of her life.The corageous, strict, self confident and determined Margaret Thatcher fights agaisnt her worst enemy, herself, who has become an insecure and confused woman because of her illness. The film is a continuous flasfback to the most relevant events of her career and personal life during the late forties untill the present day. And it is set in Great Britain, especially in Grantham, where she grows up and starts to be involved in politics, and London, where her great worth is recognized at last.
My film review:
The film is quite accurate according to the chronological order of the events and the real scenes adds realism and drama to the movie like, the annoyed and upsept British society on strike, the Falklands war and so on. In my opinion, this is an entertaining and thought-proking film and probably a bit moving. In conclusion, not only is the film worth a watch,but also Meryl Streep's superb performance is. As a result, she was awarded The Academy Award for the best actress in 2012.
