Reviews for this film have been mixed. It is mostly criticized for not being a full biography of this austere figure that like it or not marked modern history. It is true that it is not a true biopic but rather a portrait of an aging person who once tasted glory and now lives through her slow decline physically and mostly mentally. The film is fairly neutral as to the judgment of the Iron Lady’s achievements. The moment in the film that shook me the most was her candid admission that humans are not equal and that the privileged should not be ashamed of their status. Meryl Streep’s acting is magnificent. Her mastery of dialects and the way she wears her character is very impressive to watch. For a critical biopic, we will have to wait.
