#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.
