External Link: Official WebsiteThe Honourable Woman is a fast-paced, labyrinthine thriller set against an international political backdrop that carries Blickâ€™s distinctive rhythmic style and vision. It centers on Nessa Steinâ€™s (Gyllenhaal) whose father was a Zionist arms procurer, and as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. As an adult, inheriting her fatherâ€™s company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Her sudden appointment to the House of Lords, apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom.
