Golda is a ticking-clock thriller set during the tense 19 days of the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir (Helen Mirren), faced with the potential of Israel’s destruction, must navigate overwhelming odds, and a complex relationship with US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (Liev Schreiber), with millions of lives in the balance.

On October 6th, 1973, under cover of darkness, on Israel’s holiest day and during the month of Ramadan, the combined forces of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan began a surprise attack on the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights. With the country’s forces outnumbered and outgunned, Israel’s only female prime minister, Golda Meir, is forced to confront the immediate, clear, and present danger of a ticking time bomb that she hoped never to face.

Surrounded, isolated, and frustrated by the infighting of her all-male cabinet, one woman becomes locked in a race against time to save millions of lives on both sides of the conflict. Golda is the story of the intensely dramatic and high-stake decisions that Meir—also known as the “Iron Lady of Israel”—faced during the 19 critical days of the Yom Kippur War.

Please note: There’s some war conflict (visuals of bombs going off and audio of shooting) but no graphic violence. The film is rated PG-13 for thematic material and pervasive smoking.
