Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Gustav Klimt’s famous painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.” Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

The PG-13-rated film is directed by Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) and co-stars Daniel Brühl (Rush), Katie Holmes (The Extra Man), Charles Dance (TV’s Game of Thrones), Elizabeth McGovern (Once Upon a Time in America) and Jonathan Pryce (Brazil).

Well-received by the critics, the movie has grossed some $29 million at the domestic box office since its wide release to theaters in April, 2015.

Blu-ray and DVD special features on the DVD and Blu-ray include “The Making of Woman in Gold,” feature commentary with director Curtis and producer David M. Thompson and the Stealing Klimt documentary trailer. An additional piece, the Neue Galerie New York press conference, is available on the Blu-ray and Digital Download.
