    The Iron Lady: Margaret Thatcher movie gets mixed reaction

    102 流覽量 The movie The Iron Lady, a biopic on former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher starring Meryl Streep is set to hit theaters in the UK on Jan. 6. The movie depicts an elderly Thatcher looking back upon the key moments of her tenure as Britain's first and to date only female prime minister. Still a polarizing figure in the UK, the Iron Lady has again provoked debate about the legacy of the greengrocer's daughter from Grantham during the "Thatcher Years" of 1979-1990. Friends and family of the former PM have criticized the movie as "left-wing fantasy," but the script writer has defended the movie, saying Maggie fans will be pleasantly surprised.
