starring (!) - Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent
Since life is usually so stressful, my movie buddy and I usually attend comedies or action movies. So it's a bit unusual for us to see a drama.
This movie is incredible. The fact of an older Margaret Thatcher dealing with age, missing her husband and oncoming dementia can be depressing, but I found it lovingly addressed.
The facts of Thatcher's time in office seem to reflect to an extent the political situations that the USA is encountering right now - trouble dealing with unions, unrest, unemployment, recession... etc
The acting was wonderful. Although some of the make-up seemed to be spackled on, the aging of Margaret Thatcher was believable.
All in all... an EXCELLENT movie.
