I think that this movie is a lot better than some of the reviews say. While people were expecting more of a movie about Thatcher's career, and less about her memories once she is old. Nevertheless, it was a very good movie. Meryl Streep was fabulous, as usual. This movie would probably be too brutal for younger children, as it has gloomy themes about death and grief. It also includes lots of war scenes that are very violent. Good role models and morals, though.
Alot of reviews I've read note how the movie's not that great, but Meryl Streep is worth your admission to see it, and I'd pretty much agree. They focused too much on the older-Thatcher going into dimensia, when they should've focused on her career more. But GO see this movie so you'll understand why Streep won a Golden Globe for her thrilling take on the Prime Minister.
There is some nudity which I definitely did not appreciate. Two of the characters are in love. There is a little bit of language but not enough to give it a PG-13 rating. There is lots of violence and gore which I personally found disturbing. It is obvious that one character is losing her mind which kind of takes away from the historical part. All in all, I'd recommend this for a mature 13 year old if you close your eyes while all of England is celebrating so that you will not see the nudity in that part.
I loved the movie shows stories or courage and learning from mistakes however there are scenes of a man covered in blood in a riot and sometimes there is drinking and smoking but overall a great movie .
The iron lady? Or the crazy lady (how hollywood puts it :(
It was the worst movie, concerning the plot and messages, I put a good message because there was only one! They show the iron lady as an old hag not giving her credit for making the Uk a wonderful place and making peace with the US! Make sure your kids understand getting old and terrists. My recomendation is "SKIP IT" doesnt explain anything and youll be bored out of shoes by watching a crazy old lady even though Magret Thatcher was one of the best women leaders.
