Golda is a ticking-clock thriller set during the tense 19 days of the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, faced with the potential of Israel’s complete destruction, must navigate overwhelming odds, a sceptical cabinet, and a complex relationship with US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (Liev Schreiber), with millions of lives in the balance.
Her tough leadership and compassion would ultimately decide the fate of her nation and leave her with a controversial legacy around the world. ‘Golda’ is more a suspense-filled chamber war drama and less of a biopic. Nevertheless, it delivers as a taught piece of cinema with a commanding central performance by the ever-reliable Helen Mirren.
