The Iron Lady

Back in February, Meryl Streep took home her third Oscar and placed it on her mantle, taking the prize for her performance as controversial British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." But if you missed your shot to see her award-winning turn in theaters, the movie is now headed for the comfort of your own home.

"The Iron Lady" tells the story of a “common” grocer’s daughter whose social ambition and steel will — along with the love of her husband and confidant, Denis (Jim Broadbent) — propelled her to unprecedented power in a world dominated by men. Combining fact, fiction and poetic flight of imagination, director Phyllida Lloyd creates a piercing portrait which reveals the many faces of Margaret Thatcher: the hard-nosed conservative; the woman who demolished the barriers of gender and class in a male-dominated world; the spirited wife and mother who longed to change her country for the better. And through it all is Meryl Streep, once again transforming herself into something unexpected.

With the film hitting DVD and BluRay this week, we have 2 copies on DVD for some lucky readers. How do you win? Email us your name and address, along with the name of another actress who has portrayed Margaret Thatcher either on television or in a movie AND the last movie that won Streep an Oscar. Good luck!

Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email.

"The Iron Lady" is on DVD and BluRay today.
