105 minutes — 14A, Phylida Lloyd, United Kingdom, 2011
WINNER OF 2 OSCARS!
BEST ACTRESS - MERYL STREEP
BEST ACHIEVEMENT IN MAKEUP
This balanced portrait of Margaret Thatcher’s rise to power is the last film funded by the UK Film Council (shuttered in 2010, in a move that Maggie would no doubt have applauded, as part of Britain’s austerity measures). As Thatcher, Meryl Streep is “flawless” (Roger Ebert), easily earning her Oscar nomination.
