"However, [Thatcher] was never, in my experience, the half-hysterical, over-emotional, over-acting woman portrayed by Meryl Streep." - Norman Tebbit, who served in Thatcher's Cabinet.
Yes, only the trailer is out. Having seen the http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810196208/trailer" [Broken] on Yahoo! Movies, and comparing that against the loads of printed and video-taped news and programs I read and watched throughout the 1980s, I'm inclined to agree with Mr. Tebbit, along with Tim Bell, who stated, "I can't be bothered to sensationalise this rubbish."
Streep's whimsical smirk after her "the pearls are non-negotiable" line is already out of character.
Frankly, this brings to mind Saturday Night Live's many portrayals of her as a dingbat, which she most certainly was/is not.
