“I will never be one of those women, who stay silent and pretty on the arm of her husband. Or remote and alone in the kitchen doing the washing up for that matter. One’s life must matter, Denis, beyond all the cooking and the cleaning and the children. One’s life must mean more than that. I cannot die washing up a teacup.”

Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

We just watched this the other night. I’ve heard there is controversy over the historical accuracy, but that aside, as filmmaking goes, I thought it was bloody beautiful.
