Golda (2023). 1h 40m | K-12

“Having experienced the Yom Kippur War living 10 minutes from Israelu0026#39;s border with both Syria and Jordan, I was very interested to see Golda. There is a lot in this film that captures aspects of Israeli mentality and culture, presented in such a subtle way that it is not until after viewing the film may become apparent to someone who reflects on what the film portrayed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMore than anything, however, Golda is about Golda. It might surprise some viewers to realize that much of her persona was shaped by having escaped the pogroms of what is now the Ukraine. She was only a child when her family came as immigrants to the US and the film shows a side of her haunted by what might have been had they not made it to a safer country.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnother interesting element of her story is illustrated by her exchanges with Henry Kissinger. To avoid a u0026quot;spoileru0026quot; I will instead urge the viewer to pay close attention to the inter-actions between them, always behind closed doors.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGolda is a history lesson wrapped in a biography. It is solid film making with good writing, directing and an outstanding performance from Helen Mirren. It captures an amazing phenomenon: the experience of war time leadership born on the shoulders (and in the kitchen) of a woman who carried this burden with incredible courage, sensitivity, intelligence, and honesty.”
