Woman in Gold (2015) Rated PG-13

A Jewish refugee takes on the Austrian government to recover her family’s artwork stolen during WWII. Starring Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, and Daniel Brühl.

I thought this was great storytelling of true events – the art that was stolen during World War II. The film was carried by the performances of Mirren, Reynolds, Brühl, and the most underrated actress, Tatiana Maslany. It was great to see Maslany playing the young Mirren, or was it Mirren playing the older Maslany. They were perfect playing the same character at different points in her life. Overall, I thought the film was a wonderful telling of Maria Altmann’s life and the others who lost everything due to the war. This is a film worth a watch.
