The Weinstein Co. has created a series of unusual campaign-style posters to promote the film online and possibly in print as well. The intentionally defaced ads play off the idea that not everyone was in love with Thatcher in her home country, embracing the controversy she stirred in England, not shying away from it. It might seem odd to promote a film with an ad campaign that seems to disparage the movie’s subject, but it’s very much a play on Thatcher’s thorny relationship with many in her country during the time she served as prime minister (article courtesy Politico). Another new poster, probably for its wide release in the USA, has been added as well.

Also, with thanks to Frank for the heads-up, Meryl has been awarded Best Actress for “The Iron Lady” by the Denver Film Critics Society and has received a nomination as Best International Actress for the Irish Film and Television Award. Congratulations!
