#rsrh The Iron Lady Teaser Trailer.

It’s… probably going to suck.



Claire Berlinski
has it right, I think: it doesn’t quite ring true for Maggie Thatcher.  The family’s also reportedly not happy about the script.  So, my remaining hopes on it not sucking are now reduced to:

  • Early trailers often make a movie that doesn’t suck look like it sucks.
  • Meryl Streep has sufficient professional pride (and enough of a healthy desire to not wreck her largely apolitical professional reputation) to not do a hack job.

Neither hope is precisely forlorn, but it doesn’t look good.

    Apolitical?! Who told you that…Oliver Stone?

      Pretty much, Jerome. It’s one of the penalties of doing political blogging for almost a decade; my threshold levels for notable political involvement get higher and higher every year.

    Tell me you left out the sarcasm tag there. Meryl Streep is not only a hack but a shameless hack. A list of some of her most recent far left anti-American hack movies:
    Rendition
    Lions for Lambs
    Doubt

    This is a woman who for the past few years has played bashing conservatism, Republicans, and anything not directly associated with Democrats. Now of all of a sudden she wants to do a fair hand to Margaret Thatcher who was anathema to everything Streep, the director and the producers admire and hold dear? Anyone who believes that she will be honest in her portrayal please share what you are smoking it has to be some great stuff.
