Saw the film yesterday. Well worth seeing for many reasons but best to form your own opinion.

We saw it yesterday at our local Odeon. Altogether there were 6 people viewing it!

Although I thought Meryl Streep was superb I didn't actually rate the film - far, far too much emphasis on Thatcher's dementia issues.

Haven't seen the film myself. Many reviews say that it sidesteps the controversies of her premiership and focuses more on her personality. Can't see too many people in Yorkshire or the Welsh Valleys watching it.
She may have been a vicious old bag but she certainly made an impact. It quite scary to see Maggie/Meryle Streep staring down from billboards and ads on the sides of buses.

You can perhaps ask yourself whether the country is a better or worse place because of the influences of Maggie? I err on the side of better. Sure, she did some things wrong, some very wrong, but nobody can get it right all the time and at the time and later she realised the mistakes and learned from them.

Maybe you benefited but a lot of people didn't. Whole industries decimated, communites devestated, finance deregulated to create the mess we're in today. Thatcher did do a lot wrong and very little right.
