Gideon Meir, the grandson of former Israeli prime minister Golda Meir, and director Guy Nattiv, join Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle to talk about their new film "Golda,” a biopic of the country's first—and only—female leader. The film focuses on the intensely dramatic and high-stakes responsibilities and decisions that Golda Meir, also known as the “Iron Lady of Israel,” faced during the Yom Kippur War. “She's a portrait of incredible strength in this film, and her nature comes across in this film, especially with regard to Moshe Dayan, an iconic Israeli hero who takes kind of a reputational hit in this movie, and yet she nurtures him through this crisis on a day-to-day basis,” says Barnicle. Learn more about the film, the casting of Mirren and her long-time connection to Israel.
