News & Interviews for The Honorable Woman: Season 1
The Honorable Woman is first and foremost an engrossing thriller, with its status as a notable feminist genre deconstruction coming in a distant second.
Whatever your viewing regimen, Honorable Woman is highly recommended for its distinctive approach, bravura performances, overall digestibility and, yes, degree of difficulty.
The Honorable Woman has become rich drama by the end of episode one, and the eight-part spy story only gets more complex, tense and rich as it moves forward.
A beauty that requires time and patience, but at least strongly hints at a payoff that will reward both.
The unbelievable aspects of The Honorable Woman never overwhelm the grounded characters or fascinating narrative-they just pepper it with a bit of spy movie flair.
