      Audience Member Bruce B below's got it about right. This movie turned me into an Andrea Riseborough watcher - easily her best, so far, as she carries the film & magnetizes the screen. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I loathed Margaret Thatcher. I loved this film. It's perhaps the best political movie I've ever seen, certainly far far ahead of even the best American political films. It's an interesting approach to document Thatcher's early years rather than her later fame as prime minister. Yet the future leader is strongly evident in Andrea Riseborough's brilliant interpretation of Thatcher as an iron willed flirt. No small feat to transpose the well known Thatcher haughty expression, purposeful gait and swinging handbag to the younger and sexier woman of an earlier era. Rory Kinnear has captured Dennis Thatcher's bumbling anonymity perfectly. And Geoffrey Palmer... The wonderful and versatile Geoffrey Palmer... His curmudgeonly establishment Tory character is priceless. 5 Stars 11-07-13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting to see how she fought her way into politics... And never gave up!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Super... & interesting... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I find politics boring but this was interesting to watch! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Thatcher might not have always been popular but she had balls and was quite a brilliant politician. She paved the way for many women in poitics. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
