As rockets rain on Israel and the civilian death toll in Gaza keeps mounting, a new television mini-series explores one of the most intractable and insidious conflicts of the modern world. That would be the enmity between the C. Two rival spies actually play chess against each other in the show.
And the focus on tensions beyond the Middle East is merciful. In this raw, bloody moment in history, some viewers may worry that any European series that deals with Israel and Gaza would seek to sneak a pro-Palestinian agenda subliminally into an American network show. Maggie Gyllenhaal is captivating as Nessa Stein, a London-based heiress whose father was a legendary arms manufacturer and Zionist.
She and her older brother, Ephra Andrew Buchanare dual citizens of Israel and Britain, and their father was assassinated in front of their eyes when they were children. Their mother died in childbirth, and the orphaned siblings are unusually close. Something terrible happens to Nessa, but her trajectory is a veiled mystery that unfolds in flashbacks and elliptical side glances. The recurring theme is trust: Nothing is quite as it seems, even some of the most loyal companions have buried agendas, and everyone has a secret.
The death of a Palestinian businessman who was in London to seal a contract with the Stein Foundation draws the attention of British intelligence, an institution as murky and underhanded as a Middle Eastern bazaar. Hugh Hayden-Hoyle Stephen Rea the head of the Middle Eastern desk, is a shaggy relic of an old-boy network that has been supplanted by a new-girl cabal.
The United States, which has a female secretary of state, is, as ever, a blundering giant that tries to dictate policy to the British government. But Hugh is also oppressed from within.
He is threatened by a younger, more ambitious and steely British competitor who works in the Washington office, Monica Chatwin Eve Bestbut he cannot count on the full support of his superior, Julia Walsh Janet McTeera cool, confident manipulator who has her eyes on becoming the top spy. The American Ms. Gyllenhaal is remarkable playing a principled but conflicted woman whose quicksilver personality alters from hour to hour and flashback to flash-forward.
Acting, like espionage, is a field that the British feel they created, dominate and still excel at, even if other nations now have better resources and a greater global reach. British actors and writers still have so much unrivaled training and talent that they easily sweep up the best projects.Bbc seeking women who get it
