The Iron Lady

My wife and I watched this on Netflix streaming a few nights ago when we were up to our earlobes in snow up here in Maine.

Let me preface my very brief remarks by saying that I remember Margaret Thatcher's reign of terror and I have NOTHING positive to say about her politically and very close to nothing positive to say about her personally except for the fact that I'm quite certain that she made sure to pick a very flattering shade of lipstick to apply whenever she was going to kiss Saint Ronald Reagan's pruney, wrinkled and leathery old ass for him.

That being said, I can highly recommend this movie simply for the wonderful performances by Meryl Streep and by Jim Broadbent. Bravo, because they were each superb, as I've learned to expect from both of them.

Kudos to 2 very fine actors for the job they did in the film biography of someone that I consider to be an ENORMOUS walking turd!

PEACE!

7. I liked the movie.

I found her to be a very sympathetic character and came to believe that her public and personal personas were probably really quite different.

Performances were great, I agree.

8. You may well be right, but...

...the public persona and her actions are really all we can use to evaluate. After all, remember when we were told that George W Shithead was really OK because he was the kind of guy you'd love to sit down with for a beer?


PEACE!
