{Movie Review} Woman In Gold

4.18.2015

I saw the movie "Woman In Gold" this week and really enjoyed it. It has not soared at the box office and has not been given super ratings by the critics, but hubby and I liked it. Most of the time we don't agree with the critics.


This is the true story of Maria Altmann, played by the fabulous Helen Miren, who fights to get back the portrait of her aunt which had been taken by the Nazis when they invaded Austria during World War II.

This is the painting that was taken and was hanging in a Viennese museum.

This is when Maria sees the painting for the first time in sixty years.

Ryan Reynolds plays as Randy Schoenberg, a young inexperienced lawyer who takes on Maria's case.

If you like movies based on true stories and real life I give this one a thumbs up.

So let's go to the movies!

  3. I've heard that is it great and that Helen Miren is again amazing all with her wonderful talent! I hope we head out to see it soon. If my dear hubby had his way, we would wait until it comes out on TV. The last movie we saw was Ben Hur!

    Have a great day, Kim!

  15. Kim, This true story story features prominently in the documentary "The Rape of Europa" - which also discusses other art thefts conducted by the Nazis. The documentary is FANTASTIC and you can watch it through Amazon instant video or purchase the DVD through Amazon. My hubby and I were able to borrow it from our local public library. At any rate, I am SUPER excited to see the film. The previews look great! Thanks for the review.
    Best,

  17. I don't see many movies but I did see this one last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great follow-up to The Monuments Men last year which was also about recovering art stolen by the Nazis.
