Woman in Gold by Gustav Klimt
This film is a glimpse into the Nazis of the third Reich plundering art work throughout Europe. Helen Mirren, tells the true story of one Jewish women’s battle to recover her family’s stolen art, six decades after the German soldiers plundered her family’s gorgeous Viennese apartment. This Klimt painting was of Mirren’s aunt and had hung in the family’s living room.
Ryan Reynolds plays a young attorney who agrees to help her. He is able to hold his own against Mirren’s magnificent acting.
The film has lovely glimpses of Vienna, one of the most monumental and elegant cities in Europe. Another very popular painting by Gustave Klimt is “The Kiss.”
