THE HONORABLE WOMAN is a fast-paced thriller set against an international political backdrop. With his distinctively rhythmic style, writer-director Hugo Blick (The Shadow Line) creates a compelling drama about family inheritance, international business and world politics. Nessa Stein's (Maggie Gyllenhaal) father was a Zionist arms procurer; as a child, she and her brother witness his assassination. After inheriting her father's company as an adult, she inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, she finds her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians creates an international political maelstrom.
