"The Honorable Woman" is a meditative thriller that investigates a woman's inner life and a global hot spot. Poised between dream-state and tough reality, it exposes timeless truths while remaining as current as the next Israeli-Palestinian clash.
An eight-hour miniseries premiering Thursday at 10 p.m. EDT on SundanceTV, "The Honorable Woman" is a virtuoso effort by Hugo Blick, who wrote and directed it.
And in the lead role of Baroness Nessa Stein, an Anglo-Israeli businesswoman who wants to span a raging divide with communication cables laid between Israel and the West Bank, Maggie Gyllenhaal delivers the most nuanced yet full-bodied performance you could hope to see.

James Franco is an actor, film director, screenwriter, producer, film editor, teacher, author, poet. He has 17 entries at IMDB for films this year or in the next two years! He is not one to talk about any of those but rather Child of God which IMDB lists as 2013 which we wrote, directed and stars in.
A dispossessed, violent man's life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.It sounds bleak, it must be a Cormac McCarthy book.
It is currently rated at 39% at Rotten Tomatoes.
