Ready to be amazed? Here's the first picture of Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in THE IRON LADY, the upcoming biopic of the famous British prime minister. Starring also another amazing acting legend, Jim Broadbent, as her husband, the film will tell the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male dominated world. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman. We smell Oscars here as usually!
