Three sentence movie reviews: The Iron Lady
I feel uneasy about portraying a powerful political woman through the lens of dementia, especially given that (as Friend Kelly observed) this will not be the way they frame the Ronald Reagan story whenever they get around to telling it. The acting is fabulous, and for that you should watch this, but the story didn’t seem to have a common thrust to carry it through. Also, Margaret Thatcher’s politics aren’t my politics, so it was at times, difficult to root for her.

I agree about your last sentence. I wanted to see the acting but did not think I could stomach her politics. Interesting tidbit about the dementia, I had not known that was the lens…
