“The Iron Lady” Simple Brilliance

Our Friday night movie was a historical and dramatic depiction of the life of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Played by Meryl Streep we are taken back in time to Lady Thatcher’s childhood and rise to political prominence. If you are a Britphile and political junkie (like me) this is a fantastic film. Streep’s performance is awesome and she makes it look effortless. Jim Broadbent is one of the better actors out there and does a great performance as Dennis Thatcher. There are a few people you will recognize such as Anthony Head, Iain Glen and Richard E. Grant who have been in “Doctor Who”. You must see this film.


Queen and Country, Hope For Girls


Our friends in the United Kingdom have had some great women in leadership. Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for 60 years. They have had a great woman in Margaret Thatcher who was Prime Minister. Amazing fetes and a great role model for young women all over the world.

I hope for a woman to lead our nation one day. Perhaps there will be one in my lifetime. Women can do anything and we need to be sure today’s girls grow up to have every option available to them.
