  • 1 star "Episodic whitewash of the villainous Thatcher."
  • 2 stars "i loved meryl streeps' performance but the movie fell terribly short. there was far too much emphasis on her dementia. i would have preferred to see the struggle for the rise to power as well as her actual prime ministership as well. great performance by streep but i don't think she should have won the oscar over viola davis."
  • 5 stars "amazing movie! for people who gave it low ratings and bad comments, you are crazy!! she won an oscar and the movie was bomb."
