Grant Writer: Abi Morgan Director: Phyllida Lloyd Distributor: The Weinstein Company Release Date: December 30, 2011 There are a number of reasons to see THE IRON LADY.

On the successful end, there’s THE OFFICE. On the other end, there’s COUPLING. FREE AGENTS is somewhere on this scale, but it starts out with a lot of promise.
