Disappointing

Great acting by Streep but superficial overall, didn't tell me anything I didn't know of Thatcher and was just a romp through UK politics over that time using flashbacks. Without knowing suspect it doesn't have the support of her family as no new material and haven't portrayed how she is as an older person very respectfully. Not that I have any feelings about her one way or other other (bar not paying Poll tax when I was in the UK) but don't feel the producers would have portrayed an ex male PM as demented.
