Directed by
Phyllida Lloyd

Director Phyllida Lloyd's biopic recounting the life, rise and fall of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Writer Abi Morgan's script follows Thatcher's rise from modest beginnings to her role as Prime Minister, framed by a contemporary imagining of her later years, largely spent outside public scrutiny.

Meryl Streep won Best Actress at the Baftas and Oscars in the titular role of Margaret Thatcher who, now in her eighties, is prompted to reminisce about her life and rise to power, as well as recalling her closest relationships, in particular that with her now-deceased husband Denis.

The young Margaret's ascendance in politics, inspired by her father, begins in the late 40s and takes her to the landmark moment in British history when she leads the Conservative Party to victory in the General Election of 1979, becoming the country's first female Prime Minister.
