Synopsis

Casting aside the orthodox plotting of a biopic, this film about the controversial former prime minister focuses on a present day depiction. Margaret Thatcher is an elderly woman suffering from dementia, who still talks to her dead husband, Denis. These conversations spark flashbacks to her landmark moments in government; the Falklands War, the miners strikes and poll tax riots. Starring the marvellous Meryl Streep, who gets under Thatcher's skin to deliver a performance so precise, it's hard to distinguish her from the real woman.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
