First Look: Meryl Streep as ‘Iron Lady’ Margaret Thatcher

The resemblance isn’t nearly as striking as Meryl Streep’s turn as Julia Child, but it’s a safe bet that the phenomenal actress will make The Iron Lady her own and sink right into the role as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

This is definitely not the first time Thatcher has appeared on film (as herself or played by an actor), but it’s the most high profile to date. This is the second feature from Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Lloyd. No word yet on whether it will be a musical, but it is in its second week of filming.

Check out Streep as Thatcher for yourself:

The hair is spot on, but that was always going to be easy. The slightly vacant stare is a little interesting, though.

So, we’re all thinking another slew of awards will come of this, right?
