The Honourable Woman

60 minutes

The Honourable Woman is a fast paced, labyrinthine thriller set against an international political backdrop. With Hugo Blick's (The Shadow Line) distinctive rhythmic style and vision as both a writer and director, he brings together a compelling drama about family inheritance, international business and world politics. Nessa Stein's (Maggie Gyllenhaal) father was a Zionist arms procurer, and as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. As an adult, inheriting her father's company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, her sudden appointment apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom.

This has been on my "someday" list for a while. Well, "someday" was July 23. I'm only through the first two episodes, but I'm already (re) obsessed with the brilliant Maggie Gyllenhaal. And I am enjoying the slow rollout of Lady Stein's backstory and secrets. Well done.

I really wanted to love this show, but I just didn't. It is sadly very forgettable. I actually watched it last year and just now thought to myself "Oh, I never got a chance to finish this one" and I clicked it and after seeing all the "watched" boxes checked I still couldn't remember watching it. I had to read the summary recaps and then I finally remembered watching. I have a good memory, this show just was not memorable. Very good acting though.
