RELEASES! The Iron Lady | Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, SpyJanuary 11, 2012
Hello, I am Antonio and from this moment on I am going to recommend the most important releases every week. I will insert a link with the best films in English, especially British and some from Hollywood. They could be movies from other nationalities because there are films shot in English from many other countries (such as Sweden, Canada…). It will depend on the quality and on how many British movies have that week.
I will also recommend British films shown in the Filmoteca Española and Círculo de Bellas Artes, two great screens where we can see basic classicals. This option has guaranteed success and a very good price.
This week we could see two interesting British films:
1. The Iron Lady (Phyllida Lloyd, 2011) [Spanish title: La Dama de Hierro]
This is the new Phyllida Lloyd’s film, who directed the adaptation from the musical “Mamma Mía!” with ABBA’s songs. Meryl Streep is tranformed into the famous British Prime Minister with an amazing work of characterizing. The reviews have been very cruel on the film because it is a soft biopic of a strong personality. If we want to know more we have to see it.

2. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (Tomas Alfredson, 2011) [Spanish title: El Topo]
The nordic director Tomas Alfredson, who had a big success with the beautiful vampires tale “Let me in”, releases an adaptation from a novel written by John Le Carré. This is a complicated story because it is about spies, politics and secret bussines.This is one of the movies that appears in some of “The best 2011 films” lists around the world. Curiosity: The score is composed by Alberto Iglesias, the great Spanish musician.
