Make no mistake, this is Streep's show from the first frame to the last. She commands the film with a power and a grace that is as rare as it is breathtaking.

Streep, a prominent presence throughout, truly carries the film.
December 6, 2018
Ultimately saved by its intriguing modern day sequences and an unbelievable example of mimicry from Streep.
November 10, 2018
The film in its entirety is just OK
August 31, 2018
The Iron Lady is a better performance than it is film, although I suspect the performance will carry the day.
March 21, 2018
The Iron Lady is a tremendously good movie in what it includes, but one that is sadly incomplete.
September 18, 2017
Played by the always exceptional Meryl Streep, Thatcher is given more humanity than she may actually deserve.
August 30, 2017
As for Streep, she's taken this material and run with it like Tim Tebow with a Hail Mary pass.
June 30, 2013
A solid tribute to the conservative icon despite its meandering focus on her failing health.
September 24, 2012
All of the film's flaws melt away in the face of another great performance by Streep.
September 4, 2012
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.
April 30, 2012
The filmmakers haven't come to any conclusion about Thatcher or, indeed, why they made a movie about her.
April 16, 2012
Not as satisfying as 'Kings Speech' or 'The Queen' but Streep's predictably flawless performance of Margaret Thatcher induces awe and rousing audience response.
March 23, 2012
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.
January 26, 2012
A great performance can elevate a mediocre film, as is the case here - this is worth watching for Streep alone.

Meryl Streep's acting is fantastic; the movie not so much.
January 23, 2012
This isn't a great movie, but Streep is great in it.
January 20, 2012
Whatever flaws the film as a whole may have, the phenomenal accomplishment of Streep's work in it cannot be overstated.
