I am not a Meryl Streep fan but her performace was outstanding. The movie however wasn't. The flash backs become annoying and the movie delt mostly with troubled times and didn't spend hardly any time on her accomplishments. Also, I expected to see her interaction with Ronald Reagan but only a glimpse was shown. I cannot recommend this movie for anyone wanting to see her as history will remember her. For that read her autobiography "Downing Street Years".
