The Iron Lady 2011

Dreadful film. I'm no fan of Thatcher but there's an interesting story to be had from her life but this pantomime of a film fails to find it. The totally fabricated scenes of her talking to her dead husband as she goes quietly insane were awful. And while Steep was occasionally brilliant, she appeared to be channelling Jennifer Saunders for most of the film. Avoid.

  • My God, I have just posted my own review and said exactly the same thing re Saunders! It's that scene where she loses it in the cabinet meeting especially. Definite shades of Comic Strip or Miranda Richardson's Queenie from Blackadder II
