Unfolding over 19 days in 1973, Golda focuses on Israel’s first and only female head of state Golda Meir (Helen Mirren) as she balances complex international relations and struggles to keep her own cabinet on side during the Yom Kippur War.
Mirren gives a masterful performance as Golda, carrying the weight of her political brinkmanship. Fine support comes from Liev Schreiber as Henry Kissinger, and their negotiation scenes are a tense highlight.
