英文导读

The Iron Lady is a 2011 British biographical film based on the life of Margaret Thatcher, the longest serving Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of the 20th century. The film was directed by Phyllida Lloyd. Thatcher is portrayed primarily by Meryl Streep, but also, in her formative and early political years, by Alexandra Roach. Thatcher's husband, Denis Thatcher, is portrayed by Jim Broadbent, and Thatcher's longestserving cabinet member and eventual deputy, Geoffrey Howe, is portrayed by Anthony Head.

'The Iron Lady' is a surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep), the first and only female Prime Minister of The United Kingdom. One of the 20th century's most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male dominated world.

The film begins circa 2008 (opening against the backdrop of news of the Islamabad Marriott Hotel bombing) with an elderly Lady Thatcher buying milk unrecognized by other customers and walking back from the shop alone. Over the course of three days we see her struggle with dementia and with the lack of power that comes with old age, while looking back on defining moments of her personal and professional life, on which she reminisces with her (now dead) husband, Denis Thatcher. She is shown as having difficulty distinguishing between the past and present. A theme throughout the film is the personal price which Thatcher has paid for power. Denis is portrayed as somewhat ambivalent about his wife's rise to power, her son Mark lives in South Africa and is shown as having little contact with his mother, and it is implied that Thatcher's relationship with her daughter Carol is at times strained.

While the film was met with mixed reviews, Streep's performance was widely acclaimed, and considered to be one of the finest of her career. She received her 17th Academy Award nomination and ultimately the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Thatcher across four decades. She also earned her third Golden Globe Award for Best Actress –Motion Picture Drama (eighth overall), and her second BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

耄耋之年的撒切尔夫人(梅丽尔·斯特里普 饰)罹患老年痴呆症,时常在幻觉和回忆中切换。她作为杂货店店主的女儿,因为出身贫寒,饱受世人的白眼。然而,在聆听了保守党的演讲后,她坚定了自己的政治信仰,并以优异成绩考入牛津大学,虽然在一次议员选举中落败,但是她却收获了真挚的爱情,这坚定了她从政的人生道路。她逐渐走到了保守党首的位置。终于,保守党在选举中获胜,而她也成为了英国历史上第一位女首相,组建了自己的内阁政府。

面对纷繁复杂的国际国内局势,她主张的自由市场政策也饱受非议,但是她用过人的智慧和超强的忍耐力,战胜了左辅右弼众叛亲离的局面,凭一己之力拯救了英国经济,捍卫了领土主权,被世人称作铁娘子……

重点学习

While looking back on defining moments of her personal and professional life

文中的look back on是“回顾,回忆”的意思,比如:Mr. Nelson liked to look back on the time he spent with his daughter.(纳尔逊先生喜欢回忆他与女儿度过的时光。)文中的defining moment是“决定性时刻;转机性事件”的意思,比如:List the defining moments of your life.(列出你生命中关键性的时刻。)所以,文中这句话的意思是:“当回忆起她个人及职业生涯中的关键性时刻时。”

She is shown as having difficulty distinguishing between the past and present

文中使用的是have difficulty (in) doing sth.该句型中的in可以省略,是“做某事有困难”的意思,比如:I always have difficulty in pronouncing new words.(对新单词的发音我总是有困难。)
