Meryl Streep gunning for another Oscar in the Iron Lady trailer

Jul. 7, 2011by:

In the trailer below for THE IRON LADY we have the first footage we've seen of Meryl Streep as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. It's only a few seconds but just from that brief bit, and from the fact that she's Meryl f*cking Streep, I think it's a safe bet we know at least one of the Best Actress nominees this season. (If you have any doubts, it's being released by The Weinstein Co. who live for this sort of thing.)

As mentioned, the film stars Streep as Thatcher with Jim Broadbent starring as her husband Denis. The movie reunites Streep with Pyllida Lloyd who directed the actress a few years back in MAMMA MIA. But enough of me filibustering. Let's get to what you came to see: Meryl Streep doing what she does so well.

THE IRON LADY hits theaters on December 16.

All depends on tone

A good cast behind it, but Margaret Thatcher and her Tories did things to this country from which some people haven't recovered in certain parts of the UK. If this is a film that gets creative with history for some feel-good bumf, it's going to be horseshit. Who's directing? OH SHIT.

January?

I need more before I can look at this seriously. I feel like I got a snippet of an SNL skit played seriously. I have faith in Streep to pull this off, but she's Meryl Streep because she can do more than just imitate. I need to see her in action. Not to mention the generation that might even have forgotten who Thatcher was.

You're right. It could be. But from the get-go they had a better marketing plan.

You speak like someone who wasn't alive during the time. I.E., a clueless moron.

Can you tell me when the last time something leftist showed something conservative in a positive light?

Let's be honest here.

This film is smelly hippie nonsense.

except that Thatcher DID show signs of dementia and many British citizens didn't like her being Reagan's wing(wo)man.

Love how something is "leftist" if it shows anything conservative in a less than positive light.

I still see the little reference of Thatcher in Love Actually (Hugh Grant segment). Streep can pull it off. Looks like it's another Oscar contender for her.

Politics

I don't know much about British history or politics, but I'm fairly certain that Sarah Palin would win by a landslide if she were as smart and charismatic as Thatcher, for better or worse.
