Monday Movie Review

The Iron Lady
To be honest this movie is exactly what you expect it to be, but I liked that about it. After all, I did really want to see it. The movie reminds me quite a bit of J. Edgar, but I liked The Iron Lady better.

Meryl Streep as good as everyone is saying. Although I enjoyed the girl who played a young Margaret Thatcher quite a bit as well. The movie is slow, but I think that's somewhat expected with this movie.

My one complaint is that I wish they explored more of Thatcher's time in office. I think there was an assumption that most people knew her politics, so they didn't really explain them. But I didn't really, and would have been curious to know more. Although as it was the movie was quite long and tried to encompass almost her entire life, so I understand that there wasn't a lot of time to spotlight each time period.

Again, Meryl Strep is really amazing in this. No, it isn't a blockbuster, but I still think this was a really enjoyable movie.
