The Long Walk to Finchley (2008)

Type :   Production countries :  


Margaret Roberts gains a role as research chemist into ice cream and in her spare time pursues her political ambitions with her father's help and begins her relationship with Denis Thatcher. She is nominated the Tory candidate for the constituency of Dartford in the run-up to the 1950 election, and is openly optimistic despite most other Tories' opinion that no Tory can win the seat, let alone a woman. During the election campaign she meets Ted Heath, candidate for the key marginal seat of Bexley. He is suspicious of her populist and publicity-seeking style, but less overtly hostile to her than more reactionary figures in the party such as Waldron Smithers. Overall national party strategy is for Roberts to draw Labour attention away from Bexley and Chislehurst (also being fought by a woman, Patricia Hornsby-Smith) to enable these two key marginal seats to be won.
