The most celebrated actress of our time stars as the most powerful woman of her time. Oscar® winning* Meryl Streep, the most nominated performer in Academy Award® history, delivers the definitive portrayal of Margaret Thatcher, the enigmatic, highly controversial figure who became the first and only female Prime Minister of England. Much more than a biographical epic, The Iron Lady is also the surprisingly intimate journey of a “common” grocer’s daughter whose social ambition and steel will — along with the love of her husband and confidant, Denis (Academy Award® winner** Jim Broadbent) — propelled her to unprecedented power in a world dominated by men
