The Iron Lady Trailer: Why Does Margaret Thatcher Sound Like Julia Child?

By Dustin Rowles | Trailers | July 7, 2011 | Comments ()


Here, folks, is your brank-spankin' new trailer for Meryl Streep's The Iron Lady, in which she plays a Margaret Thatcher who is apparently in need of a make-over. The film, which also stars broadbent, focuses on the price that Thatcher played for power, which was apparently giving up her hat. Tsk tsk.

Check out the trailer.

Does anyone else find that her British accent sounds an awful lot like her Julia Child, only slightly less endearing? And if you are curious, like I am, about who plays the young Margaret Thatcher in the film, it's Alexandra Roach. She looks like this:


Why not just get Streep's daughter, Mamie Gummer? And give us more excuses to say Mamie Gummer? It has a nice sound to it, doesn't it? It's what I say after I apply my lipstick to distribute evenly between the lips. Mamie Gummer.

It is a funny old world, isn't it?
