Dame Helen Mirren transforms into Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir as she navigates overwhelming odds during the tense, deadly and devastating 19 days of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. After Arab forces, led by Egypt, invade the country during its holiest time of the year, the Prime Minister is tenacious and stalwart, dealing privately with her own health problems as the casualties mount on the front. Director Guy Nattiv highlights Meir’s underlying warmth and humor during her many conversations with U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, exquisitely played by Liev Schreiber.
