    Streep is a pleasure to behold; less so the rest of The Iron Lady.

    Meryl Streep gives a fully realized portrait of British Prime Minister Thatcher in a biopic that values character over context.

    It's hard to rationalize the vision of this dotty elderly woman with the tough-minded politician. The story lacks insight, glosses over key political issues and is unworthy of Streep's masterful performance.

    Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher is the main reason to see The Iron Lady, which was directed by Phyllida Lloyd - not just the main reason but the raison d'être of an otherwise misconceived movie.
