WOMAN IN GOLD
Directed by Simon Curtis, starring Helen Mirren as Maria Altmann in a remarkable true story of her journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family.
60 years after she fled Vienna during WW2 Maria starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Gustav Klimt’s famous painting, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer1.
Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer, Randy Schoenberg, played by Ryan Reynolds, she embarks upon a major struggle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.
Other actors include Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmes, Charles Dance and Jonathan Pryce.
