Margaret Thatcher, to me, has always been one of those enigmas, a fuzzy memory of a past generation I’d heard so much about in eavesdropped tidbits of conversation and sarcastic asides. Amidst all rumour, comment and hearsay, what stood out for me was that this woman had been enough of an icon to warrant such notoriety and fame. She did something with her life that changed people and nations. I think watching this film will allow me to discover her the way I found out about Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen.
Plus, it stars the incomparable Meryl Streep. I cannot wait to watch this film.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKPltuiEVJ8]
