Stunning performance, patchy work. Merely streep has done i
Merryl Streep has given a stunning performance interns of her body language, facial expressions and speech rendering. Soulful even when in crowd stoic when alone, dignified in her dementia, Streep has done it all. The film is patchy about Margaret,s world view and international role. In fact it gets into haste by the time this phase comes in. Wish some more meat to her international role came through as well. Her biography has quite a bit of it even if the makers could not or did not meet up...
