There are few actors, actresses, movie stars — whatever you want to call them — that have the power to command as much attention, respect, and recognition as Meryl Streep. She could star in a film that was merely a closeup shot of her sitting and silently thinking in a moving vehicle and she would probably win an Oscar. And you know what? She would have deserved it. For her role in The Iron Lady, Streep earned her third Academy Award, and you can watch that performance this July.

The Iron Lady stars Meryl Streep as the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The film follows Thatcher in her twilight years as she begins to reflect on her life and career and officially let go of her late husband Denis (Jim Broadbent) and his belongings. Throughout the film, Thatcher’s career as the first female and longest-serving Prime Minister of the United Kingdom goes under the microscope, as does her declining popularity and subsequent resignation.

While The Iron Lady received mixed reviews from critics with its 51% Rotten Tomatoes score, Streep’s performance was heavily praised. Still, the film was a box office hit, grossing $115 million worldwide against its $10.6 million budget. Of course, Streep landed her 17th Oscar nomination and third win, which arrived 29 years after her second win. If you missed Meryl’s Oscar-winner the first time around, don’t miss it again on Netflix after the 4th of July holiday.
