Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Iron Lady tells the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep), a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male - dominated world. The story concerns power, the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman. Directed by Phyllida Lloyd.

Best known for his many film scores, Thomas Newman is one of the more respected and recognized composers for modern film. He has scored over fifty feature films in a career which spans nearly three decades.
