A solid tribute to the conservative icon despite its meandering focus on her failing health.

Streep brilliantly conveying the movie's ultimate message: After all you accomplish in this life, it's the little things that may just be our intended destinies.

The filmmakers haven't come to any conclusion about Thatcher or, indeed, why they made a movie about her.

Not as satisfying as 'Kings Speech' or 'The Queen' but Streep's predictably flawless performance of Margaret Thatcher induces awe and rousing audience response.

Streep's performance of a dismissive line such as "People don't think anymore, they feel," will have even the most dyed-in-the-wool liberal questioning core beliefs.

Meryl Streep singlehandedly carries The Iron Lady with a performance-quite literally-for the ages.

A great performance can elevate a mediocre film, as is the case here - this is worth watching for Streep alone.

Whatever flaws the film as a whole may have, the phenomenal accomplishment of Streep's work in it cannot be overstated.

A two-and-a-half-star movie raised to four-star status solely on the performances of Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent.

Streep wears Thatcher's body in her prime with authority and in her twilight with an all-too human sense of frailty, reminding us that, however iron-willed she was as a conservative politician, she is still decidedly human

Although this is an interesting movie, the character outshines the screenplay. That's not surprising considering that Meryl Streep is earning acclaim for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 'Iron Lady.'

(Meryl) Streep's performance elevates the movie, making it seem more important and profound than it is.

The only element to compel your attendance of this tangle is Streep. What she can do with an anemically written role is glorious. Long may she thrive.
