      Audience Member What I thought was going to be a movie focused on the ousting of Thatcher, turned out to include elements from her earlier life, issues in her family life, and long renditions from a childhood poem. There was discombobulating flips between earlier campaigns and the final political situation. With all of these other elements included in the film, the crucial element of the downfall was only superficially treated. For example, there is only the barest minimum of a mention of the poll tax, and certainly no explanation of it. All this movie left me with is a desire to find another source to find out what actually happened. Disappointing. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Wonderful remake of Downfall (der Untergang), this time set during Margaret Thatcher's final days in 10 Downing Street. Possibly the happiest ending of any film since The Sound of Music. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Lindsay Duncan is believable as Margaret Thatcher and the final days of the PM in office are as painful to watch as they must have been to live with at the time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A look at the finald days of Margaret Thatcher's final days as a prime minister of UK. TV movie which is somewhat slow and for a non-Brit a bit boring. Duncan seems to nail Maggie in her performance. Overall a decent story about how power corrupts and losing it really stings.
