The UK Iron Lady trailer was released today, giving us a two and-a-half minute long look at Meryl Streep as the former English Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. To us Americans, The Iron Lady promises to give us a nice history lesson in British politics, British gender relations and, most importantly, the infamous British dental hygiene. Here’s a look at what’s in store for us, teeth-wise.
1. Here we have the first shot of young Margaret Thatcher, played by newcomer Alexandra Roach. Alexandra wore prosthetic teeth
2. Ah, young Denis Thatcher, played by Harry Lloyd, is the very picture of British dentistry.
3. The first shot of Meryl as Margaret, with false teeth to cover up her own perfect pearlies.
4. Jim Broadbent playing older Denis. Can you tell he’s a Brit?
5. A closer look — note the gap. (Mind it, also.)
6. Young Margaret really lets us have it with that grin!
