The most celebrated actress of our time stars as the most powerful woman of her time. Oscar winning Meryl Streep, the most nominated performer in Academy Award history, delivers the definitive portrayal of Margaret Thatcher, the enigmatic, highly controversial figure who became the first and only female Prime Minister of England. Much more than a biographical epic, The Iron Lady is also the surprisingly intimate journey of a "common" grocer's daughter whose social ambition and steel will -along with the love of her husband and confidant, Denis (Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent) - propelled her to unprecedented power in a world dominated by men.
Combining fact, fiction and poetic flight of imagination into a new breed of biopic, director Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!) creates a piercing portrait which reveals the many faces of Margaret Thatcher: the hard-nosed conservative; the woman who demolished the barriers of gender and class in a male-dominated world; the spirited wife and mother who longed to change her country for the better. Exposing the private life behind the headlines, The Iron Lady is a moving journey into the heart of an extraordinary, complex woman.
