In this glimpse of The Iron Lady — directed by Phyllida Lloyd — we see two men attempting to coach the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, played by Meryl Streep. While Streep is only on screen for mere seconds, it's obvious that once again, she's completely transformed and disappeared into her character. Even if you don't care for Thatcher's politics, it will be interesting to see her story — that of a woman becoming hugely successful in a male-dominated field — played out by such a talented actress.
