The Woman In Gold
Yesterday I saw the movie, The Woman in Gold.
It is based on a true story about Maria Altmann, who sues the Austrian government in the 90s to get back the Klimt portrait of her aunt which belonged to her family and was stolen by the Nazis.
Helen Mirren, as Maria, and Ryan Reynolds, as Randy Schoenberg, a young inexperienced lawyer, deliver dazzling performances. There are many flashbacks woven into the storyline. The brilliant last scene made me choke up.
Maria reminds me of a couple of my husband's relatives, both Holocaust survivors.
I highly recommend The Woman in Gold and predict it will win some Academy Awards next year. It is pure gold.
