Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher July 4, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Meryl Streep is one of the respected and experienced actresses of Hollywood. It has now been reported that Streep is in consultation to enact the character of Margaret Thatcher in a forthcoming biopic. Margaret Thatcher, it must be remembered, was the initial female Prime Minister of Britain.

Streep is an actress, who possesses the enviable record of obtaining the most number of Academy Award nominations. Hollywood Reporter online has asserted that Streep is participating in deliberations to join up with Phyllida Lloyd for the film in question on Thatcher. Phyllida Lloyd was responsible for the directorship of the film, ‘Mamma Mia’, in which Meryl Streep enacted a pivotal role.

The film on Thatcher will purportedly be located in 1982 and will illustrate Thatcher in the months leading up to the Falklands War that was waged by Britain against Argentina. Thatcher was an immensely controversial Prime Minister, of the right-wing Conservative Party, who was chosen democratically by the British electorate to govern Britain. She occupied the Prime Ministership for 11 years from 1979 to 1990.

The political graph of Thatcher had begun to experience a downward spiral prior to the commencement of the conflict against Argentina over the possession of the disputed Falklands Islands. However, this war against Argentina, which continued for 72 days, massively augmented the status of Thatcher as Britain decisively trounced Argentina and maintained its control over the Falklands Islands. As a result, Thatcher attained electoral triumph in the 1983 national elections of the UK.

With respect to the aforementioned biopic on Thatcher, actor Jim Broadbent has supposedly been lined up to enact the character of Denis, who was the husband of Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher attracted hate for her divisiveness but was also revered for her political robustness and her unwavering commitment to issues, which she deemed were in the national welfare of Britain.
