Ingrid ends her career on the highest note
13 October 2013 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

Fine saga of a woman of great vision and fortitude. The picture doesn't sugar coat what Golda had to give up to become who she was and while it pained her to do it somehow she knew it was her destiny to have it happen. Ingrid is great as always, this makes it even more poignant that this was her final work it shows that had she lived there would have continued to be many years of extraordinary work ahead. Judy Davis' screen time as the young Golda is limited but she conveys the scrappy girl who became the indomitable woman. Also outstanding in his smallish role is Leonard Nimoy as Golda's husband. An excellent rendering of an important life.
