DESCRIPTION:
(from Sundance Channel's press release, April 2014) "The Honorable 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. Following the murder of a Palestinian business man, Samir Meshal, after he had just been awarded the latest cabling contract, Nessa and her brother Ephra find themselves placed under the scrutiny of both Whitehall and the Secret Intelligence Service. It is then that Nessa is forced to confront not only the true nature of her business empire but of her brother and, ultimately, of herself. Set against a gripping international backdrop of paranoia and espionage, "The Honorable Woman" follows one woman's personal journey to right the wrongs conducted in her past. From the corridors of governmental power to Whitehall and MI6, from Washington and the CIA to Israel and the Palestinian Territories - the visual backdrop of Blick's gripping drama is as stunning and refined as the story that drives it.
