WOMAN IN GOLD is an upcoming drama film directed by Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) and written by award winning playwright Alexi Kaye Campbell. The film stars Helen Mirren, Tatiana Maslany, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl, Katie Holmes, Charles Dance, and Max Irons.
It is based on the true story of the late Maria Altmann (Mirren), a Jewish refugee who is forced to flee Vienna during World War II. Decades later, determined to salvage some dignity from her past, Maria has taken on a mission to reclaim a painting the Nazis stole from her family: the famous Lady In Gold, a portrait of her beloved Aunt Adele. Partnering with an inexperienced but determined young lawyer (Reynolds), Maria embarks on an epic journey for justice 60 years in the making.
