Thompson on Hollywood By Sophia Savage | Thompson on Hollywood December 7, 2011 at 12:14PM

Watch Meryl Streep and director Phyllida Lloyd talk "The Iron Lady" at this post-screening Q & A, held December 6 at NYC's Director's Guild. THR's Scott Feinberg moderated the conversation. Streep says "to capture how someone speaks is to capture them." Asked what she wants people to get from this film, Streep says she wishes that everybody that got on the subway and sees an old lady would realize that "a whole huge life lay beind all those wrinkles and those seemingly non-descript, forgettable [women]. There is nothing less exciting in our consumer society than an old lady, [but] the whole panoply of human experience is in there, to just imagine that--that's what I would hope [when people watch this film]."
