Posted 11.14.11 by reelz
The first trailer has been released for, The Iron Lady, a British political biopic about the United Kingdom's first (and thus far, only) female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher. Portrayed by Meryl Streep (The Devil Wears Prada, Julie and Julia) , co-starring Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge, Gangs of New York), and directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia, Gloriana), The Iron Lady tells the story of how a woman pushed through the barriers of a male-dominated world and made sure her voice was heard.
Told from the view point of Lady Thatcher, the movie takes an intimate look at how power has it's price, especially for a British woman in the 1980's. Streep worked extensively on this role, being an American playing an important British woman, even going to the extent of sitting in on a House of Parliment Session in London to properly prepare for her depiction of the former prime minister.
Due out in American theaters December 2011, The Iron Lady is just in the nick of time for The 2012 Oscars.
