"Virtuoso", "translucent", and "compelling" were among the words used by U.S. movie critics this week to describe Streep’s turn as Britain’s polarizing, and only female, prime minister.

"Is there anything that Meryl Streep can’t do as an actress? One can only marvel at her virtuoso performance as Britain’s Margaret Thatcher," said Rolling Stone reviewer Peter Travers.

"The Iron Lady", in which Streep plays Thatcher both as a rising politician and as a confused, elderly woman looking back on her 1979-90 period in office, opens in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, and reaches British movie theaters on Jan. 6.
