Meryl Streep performance as Margaret Thatcher was outstanding. She portrays very well Margaret Thatcher 's many sides from wife to woman of power. Well done!
From the critics

"The problem with socialism is that you eventually you will run out of other people's money".
"If you want to change this party, lead it. If you want to change the country, lead it."
Young Margaret (at a dinner party): "So, what I do think, is that a man should be encouraged to stand on his own two feet. Yes, we help people, of course we help people, but for those that can 'do', they must, just, get up and 'do'! And if something's wrong, they shouldn't just whine about it, they should get in there, and DO something about it. Change things!"
Other: Casual drinking and tobacco smoking (cigars, cigarettes) are seen occasionally.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Most of the film deals with Thatcher's dementia, and so, these scenes may be confusing or disturbing to those unfamiliar with how mental illness can be portrayed in film. Also, the archival war footage may be distressing to those with a particular sensitivity to violence.
Sexual Content: A single instance (less than a second long) of topless nudity in the context of a street celebration.
Violence: Archival footage of news segments during wartime are edited into the film, so there are fleeting glimpses of bombs, weapons, dead bodies, etc. SPOILER!!! SPOILER!! SPOILER!! There are also two separate bombing incidents portrayed within the film's narrative that may leave younger viewers with questions.
