im about 28 mins into "the iron lady" and im really digging it. so much so i thought i would pause it and post this. im not the most educated about 70s-80s british politics (so i dont really know how many of the scenes of her as PM and her way up to the top are made up for the film) but this movie has me totally captivated. if u didnt see it yet, its set in like modern times where maragret is like all demenshia'ed out and has flashbacks to when she was in power. but then when she is in the moment she makes really cool poignant statements. streep is such a good actress. so far so good. once i finish watching this ill let ya know if my opinion has changed. but for right now, wow! oh...???...and did this movie miss the oscar window for this year? cause i would have thought it would be up there for best pic based on what i have seen.
