THE IRON LADY

The Plot :

In flashbacks, we are shown a young Margaret Roberts working at the family grocer’s shop in Grantham, listening to the political speeches of her father, whom she idolized – it is also hinted that she had a poor relationship with her mother, a housewife – and announcing that she has won a place at the University of Oxford. She remembers her struggle, as a young lower-middle class woman, to break into a snobbish male-dominated Conservative Party and find a seat in the House of Commons, along with businessman Denis Thatcher‘s marriage proposal to her. Her struggles to fit in as a « Lady Member » of the House, and as Education Secretary in Edward Heath‘s Cabinet are also shown, as are her friendship with Airey Neave, her decision to stand for Leader of the Conservative Party and eventual victory, and her voice coaching and image change.


MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

It is a 1993 British/American romantic comedy film based on William Shakespeare‘s play of the same name. It was adapted for the screen and directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars in the film. The film also stars Branagh’s then-wife Emma ThompsonRobert Sean LeonardDenzel WashingtonMichael KeatonKeanu Reeves, and Kate Beckinsale in her film debut.

Plot

The plot of the film is largely unchanged from that of Shakespeare‘s original play. Differences include the modern-day setting, switching Conrade’s gender, eliminating several minor roles and consolidating others into Leonato’s aide, and expanding Ursula’s role by giving her a number of Margaret’s scenes. In addition, the film attempts to add background to the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick by showing, in an opening scene, a morning after they apparently slept together. Benedick steals away quietly while Beatrice pretends to be asleep.
