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.
