Biographical drama | Directed by Guy Nattiv | Watch in movie theatres

Golda Meir, Israel’s fourth prime minister and the first female prime minister in the Middle East, has long been lauded as a woman of tenacity and strength. This film covers the political events of the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the resultant investigation into Golda Meir’s handling of the events, and the aftermath. Helen Mirren’s portrayal of Golda is a prospective award-winning performance. Her physical transformation with sensible shoes and ever-present handbag reinforces the maternal caring side of Golda, while her actions portray steely determination and psychological strength as she sends young soldiers into dangerous and often deadly battles. This slow-paced behind-the-scenes snapshot is an insightful look at the complexities of Israel’s presence in the Middle East and the resultant political turmoil in which it exists.
