    huh, kinda seems interesting. Better be more than a woman's rights campaign in disguise though. I'm tired of that shit.

    Wow. Fascinating, intriguing, epic. Hopefully it's not the type of trailer that's better than the movie itself!

    Don't worry... there's no disguise.

    Um, duh? icon_eek.gif Looks good though.

    Nothing wrong with women's rights campaigns. Lots of places in the world where they still have almost no rights and treated like garbage. But I understand if you are tired of seeing it thrown in your face over and over, like a student group that won't stop asking you for money in front of the college library.

    More than a woman's rights campaign?
    I don't think you know much about Maggie.

    She did absolutely nothing to advance women's rights..

    jpBITCHva saidI assume this is a horror movie.


    I wondered how long it would take for a post like this.

    I think there will a good deal of internet or blog debate over this movie and it will have nothing to do with the movie itself. I've noticed reading comments many people feel this movie brings a positive light to a woman they feel deserves none.

    She deserves absolutely no positive light whatsoever. Twenty one years after being forced to resign the effects of Thatcher's reign of terror are still very much apparent in the UK..

    venue35 saidJust because she was a monstrous bitch doesn't mean there shouldn't be a movie about her. I very much doubt the film will depict her in a positive light. Hopefully it will be realistic. Don't forget that Thatcher believed in her policies and her political views very strongly. She was also the first and last female Prime Minister in the UK, that fact alone is quite interesting. From chemistry student to her reign as 'The Iron Lady'...it should make an interesting film.


    Agreed.

    I don't blame someone for having political views like hers. I would just never vote for her were she running for office here in the US.

    Anyway for the haters segment of the movie and an overview have already been screened with people whom she knew and worked alongside in office. They hate it. Makes her look mentally unstable.

    "I can't be bothered to sensationalise this rubbish.
    I can't see the point of this film. Its only value is to make some money for Meryl Streep and whoever wrote it. I have no interest in seeing it. I don't need a film to remind me of my experiences of her. It is a non-event.
    It won't make any difference to her place in history of the fact of what she did."


    These aren't the first shots fired by the pro-Thatcher crowd. Back in August, some friends of the 86-year-old leader attended an early screening, with one anonymous viewer declaring afterward, "I didn't come here to see a film about granny going mad," apparently a reference to the fact that the movie (helmed by Streep's "Mamma Mia!" director Phyllida Lloyd) delves into Thatcher's eventual dementia.

    Meryl Streep is a true national treasure. It does't take a brain surgeon to see that this will be yet another Oscar nomination for her. Early buzz is that it will be a Meryl Streep sweep in this year's awards season, with Michelle Williams' portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn" giving her the toughest competition.

    OMG old Iron Knickers. She was never the first lady of the land; never, and that drove her nuts. In fact I'm not sure she was even women with that hair on her chest running all the way down to her balls, and thats what the Falkland Island wars were about; and she had to have a war, to prove the hair on her chest ran all the way down to her balls, and that she was as much as a man, as the next guy. But she was never the #1 Land of the land; never.

    Saw it last night and, bizzarely, I kind of disagree.

    Being a Geordie I was raised to detest the woman. But the (probably more sympathetic than it purports to be) portrayal touched me and got me researching. Seems she was very right about some things. (Gay rights certainly excepted.)

    I haven`t seen the movie, but the reviews I`ve read speak of a pretty good film. The title is very apt. The politics is of the 'light' variety(and I didn`t agree with much of hers), but you`d have to have a heart of stone not to be sympathetic to the portrayal of Thatcher`s aged,demented state.
    It`s greatly carried by an excellent script and Streep`s sheer talent as an actress.
    Despite the near idolatory of her supporters('the blessed Margaret'), etc. she wasn`t first lady in the UK. The Queen and the Princess of Wales were ahead of her.

    I wonder what Americans would have thought about a famous British actor portraying a demented Ronald Reagan, while he was still alive. I am no great fan of Thatcher, but I cannot help thinking it is in slightly bad taste.

    Saw the film. Very good acting. But, it sugar-coats the real Thatcher considerably.

    I have yet to see THE IRON LADY, but man, Williams is giving Streep a run for her money this year!

    Definitely a must see movie for Streep's performance as well as Thatcher's character and politics.

    Gays have civil right issues, so do women, other ethnicities, religions, animals,etc. This is a fact and we can not run away from it. In this country women still have a lot domestic abuse issues, they are not equally paid, as the one with dicks, etc, not only in other countries.
