The Film Giving Streep the Clean Sweep

Because “A Dangerous Method” was initially set to be shown on April 2nd as part of Indie Films Fernie but is now being featured as part of the Reel Canadian Film Festival, IFF pass holders can attend the screening of “A Dangerous Method” on Saturday, March 24th at 9pm or go to “The Iron Lady” set to take its place on the regular scheduled IFF night.

With 17 Academy Award nominations under her belt, Meryl Streep’s latest nomination for her role as Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady” led her to taking home her third Oscar for Best Actress.  In addition to the Academy Award nod, she received a Golden Globe, an AACTA International Award and string of Film Critic Association Awards and nominations the world over making her portrayal of the former UK Prime Minister one her most memorable.  Another example of Streep being the epitome of talented actors.

The opening scene is that of an elderly Thatcher in 2008 at a local grocery unrecognized by other customers.  The film continues on as a series of flashbacks.  In and out of the grips of dementia, Thatcher reflects on her life struggling to determine what is present and what has past.  From being accepted to Oxford University while working at her father’s store in Grantham to her forced resignation as Prime Minister after sitting in office for two decades, we see the tale of arguable the strongest female leader unfold.  She paved the way for women in politics by overcoming many trials in a male dominated government in various stages of her career from the Tories to the House of Commons.

The historical and emotional aspects of the film grip viewers from the beginning.  Whether you are aware of the impact Margaret Thatcher on Government or not, the film has enough elements intertwined to interest film goers old and young.
