Meryl Streep as Thatcher in 'Iron Lady' Trailer

Given my previous blog entry about the documentary Miss Representation, which examines how women are depicted in the media and the impact of seeing very few women in leadership positions on the gender composition of our elected leadership, this new "teaser" trailer for the film The Iron Lady, starring the fantastic Meryl Streep is right on the money.

In this short peek, Streep's Margaret Thatcher is being told that her hat, her pearls and her voice are all strikes against her if she were going to seriously run for office. Love her push-back.

Seems like a good movie!

My fingers are crossed for this one.

Meryl Streep has such a seamless way of slipping into the skin of her film characters and just becoming them. I hope she delivers as Maggie Thatcher.
