Meryl Streep in any movie is a spectacle, but in this movie she impresses for her gritty nature and overall outstanding portrayal of the late Prime Minister.
Portraying the incredible and controversial life of Margaret Thatcher there was only one leading Hollywood actress that has both the charm, charisma and steely determination required. Step up Meryl Streep. And step up she did! Meryl Streep delivered an incredible performance, not only winning numerous awards but also the big award. The award for leading actress at the Oscars.

It's moving, emotional but highlights the difficulty of overcoming personal heartache and issues with running a country.
A great project just to be apart of. We knew that this would go down in history as one of the all time great movies and Meryl Streep winning her Oscar only further cements this.Kit List:
