As seen on SundanceTV, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in this tense thriller set against the complex tapestry of political and emotional conflict. As a child Nessa Stein witnesses the assassination of her father by the PLO. As an adult, equal parts idealist and pragmatist, she goes on to inherit his arms business, and changes its course to lay data cables between Israel and the West Bank. Her effort to reconcile the Israelis and Palestinians lands her an appointment to the House of Lords and creates an international political maelstrom, leaving her under the scrutiny of Whitehall and the CIA.

Customer Reviews

Best show in years

Difference between British and US audiences:

-Britain —> The Honourable Woman (Superb modern spy thriller)
-US —> Tyrant (cheesy soap opera posing as “smart”)

Similar subject matter, but orders of magnitude differences in depth, plot, sophistication, suspense, character development, realism. If it was a US show, I would bet the bank that it would be cancelled after season 1 (like the superb Rubicon). Being a BBC production leaves me very hopeful!

Overall, a superb series.


WOW! Again, I'm reminded why I love BBC productions. Great performances, excellent writing, superb filming and editing make this seem like a feature film. I count the days between episodes, waiting to see if the next is as spellbinding as the last.

Intriguing Plot and Beautifully Filmed

This is basically a Middle-Eastern political thriller which is well-written, acted and filmed. It takes you into a complicated world that keeps you engaged from week to week. Give it a try if you haven’t already.
