Full Iron Lady Trailer Arrives Online

Meet The Right Honourable Meryl Streep

It takes a brave woman to portray Margaret Thatcher on screen – and that brave woman is Meryl Streep. The film? The Iron Lady.

As you'll see from the first full trailer released today, The Iron Lady concentrates more on her power as a woman and a politician, rather than the effects of her policies and Britain at large.

Also, thanks to a booming soundtrack and snappy editing, Meryl's Maggie is much more of a rock star than most people remember – unless our memory is seriously fizzing out these days.

Still, it's great to see more from not only our leading lady but her supporting cast too, notably Jim Broadbent as Denis Thatcher, Richard E. Grant as Michael Heseltine and Anthony Head's Geoffrey Howe.

This being such a contentious biopic, a lot of this trailer's good bits / bad bits are up to the opinion of the trailer watcher him/herself, so without any further ado, here's Meryl's take on Maggie (complete with rock and roll music):
