Watch: Interesting Full UK Trailer for 'The Iron Lady' with Meryl Streep
"One's life must matter." A brand new full-length UK trailer for The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, has hit the web on The Daily Mail (via The Playlist), and it's definitely something to see. It starts very serious, then takes a rather amusing break with some "Our House" by Madness tossed in, and ends on a very powerful note, but it definitely looks intriguing, and of course Streep seems tremendous as Thatcher. I'm not particularly fond of this trailer, but it does make me very interested in seeing it. Jim Broadbent also stars as her husband Denis Thatcher. Take a look below!
Watch the full UK trailer for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady, originally via The Daily Mail:
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, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in the male-dominated world of politics. 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. The Weinstein Company recently scheduled The Iron Lady for an awards release starting December 30th, plus expansion in early January.

Agreed. F'ing bitch more like it. She'd fit perfectly in the modern U.S. Republican party...

Had a long running friendship with one of history's most murderous and vile dictators Augusto Pinochet and had no regrets about that 'special' relationship either. She was and still is one twisted bitch!...Thatcher of course, not The Streep.

Looks like a lesson in character acting. Also looks like a woman I want to punch in the face.

The ONLY female prime minister - and she tarnished the chances of every other woman who could do the job better... she has a lot of enemies - why would they go watch this propaganda?
