Top piece of imaginative drama c/o my dear chum Sanne detailing the last few days of Mrs T's premiership
I saw it a few weeks ago and (my own politics aside), I loved it.
And Lindsay Duncan is extraordinary in it
"this isn’t a film
about policies. It’s a film that, hopefully, makes you think about power,
and who we have in power, and the fact that they are human. I hope it makes
us engage more with the business of politics. The less real politicians
seem, the less likely we are to engage with them. I wouldn’t vote for Mrs
Thatcher. But do I feel I understand her better now? Yes, I do."
