The Iron Lady (鐵娘子)

光是看《鐵娘子》的海報,會覺得這部電影應該就是描述佘契爾夫人是一位如何出色的政治人物和成功的職業婦女。然而,這部片子卻以較為平衡的方式呈現這位被譽為「鐵娘子」的女性政治家。在通往英國首相的政治路上,佘契爾夫人犧牲了自己與家人維持更好的關係的機會。對於她的政治生涯,這部電影也同樣以較為客觀的方式來描述,僅僅去呈現其中較為重大的事件,留給觀眾去評斷這些決策的對錯。電影透過時空交錯的編排方式,描繪佘契爾夫人輝煌的往日與如今的退休生活,顯示出「鐵娘子」依舊是血肉之軀。

不管這部電影是否真實呈現佘契爾夫人退休後的生活,所呈現出來的還是讓人印象深刻。我很好奇她自己的感受如何。曾經犧牲了那麼多,退休以後生活竟是如此,這一切是否真的值得?電影中的她相信人要活得有價值,而政治對她來說非常有價值。她對自己的選擇是否了無遺憾?真希望有個地址可以讓我寫信問她。我實在很想知道,如何能作出一個無悔的抉擇。

除了真實生活中的佘契爾夫人,扮演佘契爾夫人的也同樣是一位傑出的女性。身為她長期的粉絲,很高興她的努力同時受到了一般大眾以及美國影藝學院會員的肯定。期待她的下一部作品。

Judging from the poster, one may think that The Iron Lady will just present Ms. Thatcher as an outstanding politician and a successful career woman.  The movie goes further than this and gives a more balanced picture of the Iron Lady.  On the way to 10th Dowing Street, she sacrifices a better relationship with her family.  The movie deals with her political life with the same attitude.  It just describes the critical events in her career and leaves the judgment to audience.   By juxtaposing Ms. Thatcher’s life in the past and present, the movie shows the Iron Lady is still a human.

Whether it is close to the reality or not, the portrayal of Ms. Thatcher’s retired life is impressive. I am curious about how she feels about it.  Is it worth making all those sacrifices and having a retired life like this?  She believes that people have to live a life with value, and the public service is of great value to her.  Does she have no regret with her choice? I hope there is an address so that I can write to her and ask her some questions.  I really want to know how to make a choice that I will have no regret with.

Besides the real Ms. Thatcher, the lady who plays Ms. Thatcher is also a remarkable woman.  As her long-time fans, I am glad to see her effort receives the recognition  from both the public and the members of the AMPAS.  As always, I’m looking forward to her next film.
