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.

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.
