We’ve seen how Meryl Streep has nailed the look of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and in this newly released teaser trailer we finally get to see the actress in action.
The Iron Lady is a biopic about former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, portrayed by Meryl Streep. It’s early days yet, but with The Weinstein Company on-board there is a very likely chance Streep will be receiving her 17th Academy Award nomination. Streep came close to winning a Best Actress statue for her performance as Julia Child in Julie & Julia, so the Academy will eat up her portrayal of a controversial historical figure in British politics.
The film reunites Streep with Phyllida Lloyd who directed Mamma Mia!, and also stars Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood-Prince) as Thatcher’s husband, and Anthony Head (Buffy) as Thatcher’s longest-serving cabinet member, Geoffrey Howe.
