I love DVDs like this as it is good value. Now for the films. I did not enjoy the way the story was done in Iron Lady. The only reason I kept watching the film was due to Meryle Streep's acting. Wow!! That performance made the movie worth watching. The Queen I had seen before. Helen Miren is very good. It is an interesting looking at why people act like they do, especially the royals. While you will never know the true story, watching this you felt like you were understand why things played out like they did. The Duchess is a movie I had never seen or head of. It is period piece with lovely costume. What I think this move shows is the way and in many places women are second class citizens. The relationships are very bizzard and today many women would not put up with. I enjoyed this movies for the story more than the acting.
Ummm. I was around and in the City in the 80s. Meryl Streep does an incredible job, but I have to admit to thinking it is a rather biased view. Maggie did more for this country when it was being held to ransom by unions than anyone except perhaps Churchill, I would have preferred a more balanced look at her life and the accomplishments for this country,
