Back in 2009 she transformed herself into the gifted and charming cook Julia Child for the split story of Julie & Julia. Now the amazing Meryl Streep is back as another iconic woman in The Iron Lady, the story of Margaret Thatcher who rose to become the first woman to lead a major Western democracy. She won three successive General Elections and served as British Prime Minister for more than eleven years, a record unmatched in the 20th century. Fox has sent us the first look at Streep in full wardrobe and make-up, and it's clear that this will be yet another role she'll disappears into like a chameleon. See the photo below!
Here's or first look at Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady:
Written by award-winning writer Abi Morgan (Sex Traffic, Brick Lane), directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia), The Iron Lady tells the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman. Filming began last month with Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent (playing Denis Thatcher), but a release date has not been set for now. Thoughts?
