Meryl Streep As Margaret Thatcher

Publicity stills have been released for the upcoming Margaret Thatcher biopic starring Meryl Streep.
Streep said, "The prospect of exploring the swathe cut through history by this remarkable woman is a daunting and exciting challenge. "I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervour and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses - I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own." The film, called The Iron Lady, also stars Jim Broadbent as her husband Denis. Other members of the cast include Anthony Head, Richard E Grant and John Sessions.
The film's PR flacks say the movie is about "a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world, an achievement helped along by licking the boots of Ronald Reagan." I may have slightly edited that quote.
