Meryl Streep was incredible. I have no problem with flashbacks as such, but the movie was very little of Thatcher's life and too much set in the present. The producer/director focused too much on what she could know little of and not enough on what Thatcher did as PM, which is a matter of record. Agree with her or not she was an amazing presence during the latter part of the previous century. More focus on that would have made the movie much better.
