"The Iron Lady" — From grocer's daughter to Prime Minister

29 December 2011 9:11 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

There's a scene in The Iron Lady when Meryl Streep, as a very elderly Margaret Thatcher, is being examined by her doctor. "How do you feel?" he asks. She scoffs dismissively and retorts, "Ask me what I think."

What audiences feel (or think) about Margaret Thatcher may depend on their politics, but there is no denying The Iron Lady is another tour de force by Streep, who nails the voice and physicality Great Britian's first and only female Prime Minister with eerie accuracy. She also delivers a layered performance that approaches compassion, even when the script gives her little to work with.

Writer Abi Morgan (Shame) and director Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia! also starring Meryl) lay out Thatcher's rise to power and subsequent ouster through a present-day Thatcher's flashbacks, triggered by the early stages of dementia. There are numerous scenes of Thatcher rattling around her house, having conversations with her »

The Iron Lady was more than just a fabulous blowdry

29 December 2011 1:47 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Wishy-washy and unfocused, Phyllida Lloyd's Margaret Thatcher biopic fails to embody the indomitable spirit of its subject

Director: Phyllida Lloyd

Entertainment grade: C+

History grade: C

Margaret Thatcher was prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990.

Structure

The Iron Lady tells its story as a series of flashbacks experienced by the ageing Thatcher (Meryl Streep), suffering from dementia and haunted by the imagined ghost of her late husband, Denis (Jim Broadbent). Streep is terrific, carrying off Thatcher in her prime and Thatcher in her dotage with equal aplomb. Regrettably, however, so much of the film's screentime has been devoted to the dotage – and so many of the flashbacks are, unlike Thatcher herself, preoccupied with her role as a wife and mother – that little time is left for the interesting stuff. A few of those who are relegated to blink-and-you'll-miss-'em status, or don't appear at all: Cecil Parkinson, Nigel Lawson, »

Iron Lady star Meryl Streep tells of growing admiration for Margaret Thatcher

28 December 2011 2:52 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Meryl Streep has spoken of how her admiration for Lady Margaret Thatcher grew as she made a film about Britain's former prime minister.

There has been praise - and talk of an Oscar win - for Streep's role in The Iron Lady, although the controversial movie has drawn criticism from the ex-Tory party leader's former colleagues.

The actress says making the film has given her greater respect for a woman who succeeded against overwhelming odds.

"The more I learned, the more my view of her changed. Wherever you stand on her policies, and many people didn't like her, the scale of her influence and the fact that she got things done was extraordinary," she told the Radio Times.

"And the mental, physical, spiritual energy that it took to live every one of those days as head of the government was phenomenal. It's really humbling to consider that she was at 10 Downing Street for 10-and-a-half years. »

Russ Fischer’s 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2012

28 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Enough about 2011; let's look ahead to 2012. This past year was good about offering a diverse set of films that catered to many tastes, especially crowds that wanted something out of the range of standard multiplex fare. But 2012 looks like a much stronger year. We can almost always look ahead to a new year and say that there is a great batch of new films from established favorite filmmakers, movies with wonderful casts,  giant event movies and promising indies. But 2012 looks like it has more of those than usual. It's going to be a good year for movie watchers. After some deliberation (which no doubt has still allowed me to overlook something for which I'll facepalm later) here is a list of ten films that I'm very excited to see in 2012, followed by a full page of discussion about a whole bunch of other movies that didn't make my personal cut »

Concept Art And Still From Cloud Atlas

28 December 2011 5:52 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Though very little has been revealed so far of the upcoming Cloud Atlas, be prepared for it to be one of the movie events of 2012. With multiple directors, a killer ensemble cast, and highly-acclaimed source material, expectations for Cloud Atlas are high.

Directed by Tom Tykwer and Andy and Lana Wachowski, the film tells six connected stories that take place in varying times and locations, and is based on the book of the same name by David Mitchell.

Here’s an image of actress Bae Doona as Sonmi-451, a genetically engineered clone. Also included is some concept art from the film, likely outlining the film’s vision of Mitchell’s dystopian future.

Now that the film has finished shooting, expect a great deal more from Cloud Atlas to be revealed.

Cloud Atlas stars Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant, Halle Berry, Susan sarandon, Ben Wishaw, Jim Broadbent, James D’Arcy and Keith David. »

Meryl Streep develops admiration for Margaret Thatcher after starring role

28 December 2011 1:44 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar-winner and Hollywood liberal says playing former Pm in The Iron Lady has made her see the woman behind the politics

She is firmly a part of Hollywood's liberal elite, who describes herself as part of "the Left", but Meryl Streep has confessed developing a strong admiration for Margaret Thatcher after playing her in a film.

Streep – who is in the running for her third Oscar for her role in The Iron Lady – said playing the role had given her a greater respect for a woman who succeeded in a male-dominated world.

"I was aware of her very early on and, even though her policies were not popular, to say the least, in my circles, people were kind of thrilled that a woman had become leader," she told the Radio Times.

"When I was in college the professions open to women were so few – there were very few women that went to law school, »

‘Cloud Atlas’ Concept Art Shows the Corporate-Run Future Version of Korea

27 December 2011 2:13 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We've talked a lot about Cloud Atlas, which sees Tom Tykwer teaming up with Andy and Lana Wachowski to head up parallel film units each shooting three tales adapted from David Mitchell's novel. The cast is great (Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and Bae Doona) and we've gone over and over about how the actors are playing multiple roles, genders and races [1]. It's big ambitious stuff, but if you haven't read the novel it might also be easy to get totally lost in all the explanation. (Having read the book, it becomes a lot more clear, I promise.) We;ve seen a few on-set photos [2] and recently got a production wrap photo [3] that shows a few of the props and set dressing bits used in the film. But how about a couple more images? There is now one shot that »

Cloud Atlas Concept Art Revealed

27 December 2011 12:32 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Wachowski siblings' Cloud Atlas may end up being a complete unmitigated disaster, but at least one thing we can count on is that it will be a visual spectacle. The directing duo hasn't helmed a critically successful movie since 2003, but for all their lacking, Speed Racer and the two Matrix sequels were a marvel to look at, and their adaptation of David Mitchell's novel shouldn't be much different. We've previously told you that the movie will feature six different stories in six different timelines with the various members of the incredible cast - which includes Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent and many others - all playing multiple roles that transcend gender and race, but what exactly will that look like? Today we get a tiny clue. Korean movie site Han Cinema (via Twitch) has posted two awesome pieces of concept art from the »

First Still and Concept Art from ‘Cloud Atlas’ Showcases A Futuristic Korea, A Wooden Ship, and Bae Doona

27 December 2011 9:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With this coming less than a week after the first official peek, it looks as though the curtain is beginning to peel back on Cloud Atlas. Our latest gander at the project – concept art and our first production still — comes from HanCinema (via Twitch). One of these, labeled “Seoul 2144″ and seen above, hints at an action scene in a film that I assumed would have nothing of the sort, but that doesn’t mean I’m not intrigued. (Side note: Is there any way the Wachowskis aren’t directing that segment?)

The other piece — which depicts a wooden ship traveling toward what appears to be a dystopic city — is more visually striking to myself. It should be pointed out that Tom Hanks will be probably star in “The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing,” which tells of a man’s sea voyage from New Zealand to America. The thing is, that »

Wachowski's Wrap "Cloud Atlas" Filming

22 December 2011 10:04 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filming has wrapped on the highly ambitious time jumping ensemble drama "Cloud Atlas" and Empire have posted an official still from the production showing co-directors Tom Tykwer, Lana & Andy Wachowski, the film's various producers, and author David Mitchell who penned the book on which it's based.

What's interesting is the photo also includes props from each of the six intertwining stories that make up the film - Chatham Island totems, Vyvyan Ayrs' piano, near-future Korean vehicle, a 1970's Vw bug, some strange balloons, and an old fashioned cart.

Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Susan Sarandon, Ben Whishaw and Jim Broadbent all star in the film which will likely hit sometime late next year. »

New Behind-the-Scenes ‘Cloud Atlas’ Photo Gives Brief Look at Multiple Stories

21 December 2011 8:16 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A bizarre structure and implementation of actors notwithstanding, the visual spectacle created by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski siblings is where my main interest in Cloud Atlas lies. We already have some grasp on the former; the latter, however, has only been hinted at by set photos which, when gandered at, give us absolutely nothing.

This latest piece doesn’t exactly satiate that desire, but a behind-the-scenes photo from Empire features the three directors, author David Mitchell, and several producers standing around props from the film. Any knowledge of Mitchell‘s novel on my part is strictly tied to covering the adaptation, so /Film was kind enough to break down each object’s significance.

Front and center is a piano, featured in the story “Letters from Zedelghem.” That follows musician Robert Frobisher, played by Ben Whishaw, who takes up work for an elderly Belgian composer. Meanwhile, the blue craft on »
