The single most important thing in The Iron Lady (Blu-ray release 2012-4-10) is Meryl Streep’s marvelous performance.  Just as her character triumphed over men in the movie, I think her performance is better than the actors (and actresses) in other Academy award-winning movies.  As for the movie, it portrays the “iron” side of The Iron Lady by contrasting her determination and powerful speeches with her illness at old age.  Her character comes to life, but I doubt that her life events are presented accurately and balanced.
