Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE IRON LADY is a drama about the life of Margaret Thatcher, revisiting in flashback some key events in her political life, including her rise to power, the Falklands War, and the poll tax riots.

Violence

News footage shows rioting in the streets with policemen hitting protesters with truncheons.

Injury detail

The film includes news footage from the 1984 Brighton hotel bombing, in which we briefly see a person with bloody injuries on a stretcher. There is sight of a man face down on the ground with some blood around his head and an apparently injured or dead horse on the ground.

Nudity

There is also news footage of two topless women celebrating in public after the Falklands War.

The film also contains some mild bad language ('bugger', 'bloody', 'bastards').

There are a few brief scenes of smoking, reflecting the period in which the film is set, but the film as a whole neither glamorises nor promotes smoking and is not aimed at children.
