Trailer for ‘Iron Lady’ : Meryl Streep stars as Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd’s biopic
Ladies and gentleman, behold a great teaser trailer. The teaser for The Iron Lady really tests your patience before delivering the money shot of Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher. Iron Lady is the forthcoming biopic about the British former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, narrated through a series of flashbacks, including the 17 days leading up to the Falklands War in 1982.
There has been some controversy about casting an American as a British Prime Minister, but Streep, who is well known for her ability to imitate foreign and domestic accents, looks perfect in the role.
Keep in mind she already won the 1981 BAFTA Award for Best Actress and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the film The French Lieutenant’s Woman, in which she imitated British Received Pronunciation. Watch the trailer below. Enjoy![vsw id=”BFst8wW_V-4″ source=”youtube” width=”500″ height=”425″ autoplay=”no”]
