Sneak Peek – ‘Woman in Gold’

Let me set the scene…

Through a series of flashbacks to World War II, we find Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren (who earned her Oscar for 2006’s “The Queen”) portraying a grown up Jewish refugee named Maria Altmann from Vienna, Austria.  Based upon a true story, “Woman in Gold” follows the Altmann family’s pursuit of five paintings that were taken from their home by Nazi Germans.  And I thought Saving Private Ryan was going to be difficult.  Sorry.  Continuing…

One particular “Woman in Gold” peaked considerable interest.  Not this one, however:


Well, it did.  But that was a long time ago.  In James Bond’s “Goldfinger” to be precise.  But, I digress.  This one is what everyone’s talking about now:


Gustav Klimt’s “Adele Bloch-Bauer I” painting (1907).

In all, the Altmann family’s five paintings net worth was $325 million in 2006 dollars.  And after this Mirren-Ryan Reynolds film, look for the prices on these historic treasures to only head northward.

Check out the trailer….

Defeating Hilter (again!) via film-making, has always been a successful formula (see: “The Imitation Game”) in Hollywood–and that’s good with me.

“Woman in Gold” hits theaters in April.
