PM: “Iron Lady” film made too soon

Yahoo! Movies News

“Meryl Streep’s new Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady, should have been made “another day”, David Cameron has said. The controversial film, which depicts the life of Margaret Thatcher, has been criticised for the way it shows the former British prime minister suffering from dementia. Mr Cameron, who said he has seen the film, said it had been made too soon, but said Meryl, who plays Mrs Thatcher, was “fantastic”.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “You just can’t help wondering, why do we have to have this film right now? “It’s a film much more about ageing and elements of dementia rather than about an amazing prime minister. My sense was a great piece of acting, a really staggering piece of acting, but a film I wish they could have made another day.”

Mr Cameron joked that he was sure a film about his life would never be made.”

    Sounds like other than Meryl Streep’s performance, this is quite the forgettable film…
