The Iron Lady

(Movie Review)

There are really two different movies: one is the story of the political career of one of the most important figures of the 20th Century.  The other is the story of Margaret Thatcher going senile near the end of her life.  I was very interested in the former story, but not in the latter.  The filmmakers, however, were primarily interested in the latter story, and only told the former in brief flashbacks.  As a result, I learned nothing new.  Even so, there's probably a good 30 minute short feature buried inside this 104 minute film.
Rating: 3 out of 10 Stars
