The Iron Lady – New Trailer

The Iron Lady, a film I’ve mentioned in anticipation in at least 2 or 3 posts, finally released a full-length trailer recently, giving us more to look at and think about after watching. It looks like Meryl Streep is about to knock it out of the park again with a great performance. It’ll be interesting to see Streep work her magic again portraying a real person in a historical narrative, especially after her on-the-mark, Oscar-nominated performance of Julia Child in Julie and Julia. This time around, Streep is playing Margaret Thatcher, the first and only female prime minister of the U.K.

Looks like my recent posts have really spotlighted women in film. What better way to end the week then with a trailer starring Meryl Streep. Watch for her performance to spark the Academy in a couple months. Even coming out on the last day of the year, it looks like we might have spotted another likely Oscar nomination.

What do you think of the new trailer? Is Streep’s accent spot-on? Will her portrayal be convincing enough? I think so.

  1. Can’t stand the sight of Thatcher but this film looks pretty damn good and this is one of those rare times when I actually forgot I’m watching an actress. Streep looks incredible!

  2. I agree, Pete–it almost feels like you’re watching an actual person. Haha, Castor, come on! There haven’t been that many this year, and Meryl Streep’s been absent from film all year, too. I actually wasn’t a huge fan of the film “Julie and Julia,” but I thought her performance was incredible. But “The Iron Lady” looks fantastic to me 🙂
