The Iron Lady

The next big-screen film in the Public Hall on 3rd March is The Iron Lady, the biopic about Margaret Thatcher, starring Meryl Streep.

Meryl Streep's portyrayal of Margaret Thatcher has been widely acclaimed. She won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress and, last week, the Best Actress award at the BAFTA ceremony as well as being nominated for an Oscar.

The film has seen plenty of controversy too. The film's depiction of Thatcher has been criticised by her children, Mark and Carol Thatcher, who are reported to have said, "It sounds like some left-wing fantasy."

Stuart Jeffries of the Guardian, who was cautiously optimistic about a non-British actor playing Thatcher, expressed concern about its "narrative trajectory". He was concerned it could overlook "rage about what Thatcher, economy destroyer and warmonger, was doing to Britain" in favour of an "exclusive focus on Thatcher as a woman triumphing against the odds."

The film is showing in the Public Hall on Saturday 3rd March starting at 7.30pm. You can get a taste of it by clicking on the link below the photo to see the official trailer. 

Tickets are £5 and available from Audlem Post Office, Williams' newsagents and Hoc's Fat Pigeon.
