Golda is a ticking-clock thriller set during the tense 19 days of the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, faced with the potential of Israel’s complete destruction, must navigate overwhelming odds, a skeptical cabinet, and a complex relationship with US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, with millions of lives in the balance. Her tough leadership and compassion would ultimately decide the fate of her nation and leave her with a controversial legacy around the world.

About Golda Movie:

The film is based on the life of Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel, particularly during the Yom Kippur War.

In April 2021, it was announced Helen Mirren was set to star, with Guy Nattiv to direct, a screenplay by Nicholas Martin.

Principal photography began on November 8, 2021, in London, United Kingdom.

In January 2022, British actress Maureen Lipman criticized the casting of Helen Mirren in the film, stating: “I’m sure she will be marvellous, but it would never be allowed for Ben Kingsley to play Nelson Mandela. You just couldn’t even go there.” The following month, Helen Mirren responded by saying Maureen Lipman was “utterly legitimate” to criticize her casting, and she had discussed the decision to cast her in the film with director Guy Nattiv.

Helen Mirren would spend 3.5 hours in the makeup chair to be transformed into Golda.

In July 2021, Bleecker Street and ShivHans Pictures acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film.
