The Family of Former British Margaret Thatcher Disgusted at Meryl Streep film … “sounds like some Left-wing fantasy”
According to the UK Telegraph, the family Margaret Thatcher is appalled and disgusted with the film in which Meryl Streep plays the former British Prime Minister. The family is quoted as saying, “They think it sounds like some Left-wing fantasy.” We does the Left feel the need to do this to historic conservative leader like Margaret Thatcher? Do they ever wonder why no one watches these movies?
Mandrake hears that the screenplay of The Iron Lady depicts Baroness Thatcher as an elderly dementia-sufferer looking back on her career with sadness. She is shown talking to herself and unaware that her husband, Sir Denis Thatcher, has died.
“Sir Mark and Carol are appalled at what they have learnt about the film,” says a friend of the family. “They think it sounds like some Left-wing fantasy. They feel strongly about it, but will not speak publicly for fear of giving it more publicity.”
Cameron McCracken, the managing director of the film-maker Pathé, confirms: “It is true that the film is set in the recent past and that Baroness Thatcher does look back on both the triumphs and the lows of her extraordinary career.
NewsBustersprovides the Left-wing money quote which will most certainly put the family at ease, NOT!
[Cameron McCracken, the managing director of the film-maker Pathé] says Lady Thatcher’s health will be featured, but insists that it will be “treated with appropriate sensitivity”. He adds of the film: “Although fictional, it will be fair and accurate.”
