Woman In Gold DVD Giveaway

Although I haven’t seen Woman in Gold yet, I’ve seen every other movie starring Helen Mirren. She is well-suited to play the real life character, Maria Altmann in the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family.

WIG-DVDSixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Helen 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.” (The painting is described as the “Mona Lisa of Austria.”) Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Ryan 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.

    I’ve seen the movie. It was excellent, and Helen Mirren was outstanding as expected.

    1. Although I have yet to view this film , i am familiar with the story and as the trailer demonstrates the tenacity of a family to reclaim it’s legacy

  2. Yusuf Nasrullah

    What spoke most intimately to me about the film’s theme was how art was an object of beauty for onlookers but could assume a far more personal value for a relative of the subject who posed…and the maddening desire to acquire one’s past and defy the oppressor. Mirren brought out the shades in this role dazzlingly!

  3. I enjoy watching true story movies and the reviews on this one are very good, can’t wait to watch it

  4. I think this movie would be very interesting since it is based on history, and it would keep my attention.

  5. I had not heard of this movie. It looks amazing. I love movies based on true stories. Love the cast too.

  6. This looks like a really good and inspirational movie. I’m glad she fights and does’t give up. I would do the same for my family.

  7. I like that this is a true story about a woman who gets justice for her family and Helen Mirren is the best person to play this part! This is such a good movie!

  8. Patricia Wojnar Crowley

    This looks like a fascinating movie! I love that it’s based on a true story.

  9. This looks like an inspirational movie. Thinking about that time in history when the Nazi’s were in power makes me very sad so maybe this movie will give me a new outlook on that time and what this lady does to retrieve her possessions.

  10. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I love the cast and art. It sounds like a powerful storyline.

  11. I have not seen it yet. It looks like a good story line, good acting, cast, and really nice scenery. Thank for the chance to win.

  12. I havent seen this movie but I watched a preview and it looks really good. Thanks for the giveaway. I hope that I win.

    I saw woman in gold so named because the Austrians did not want the title with the real name of the subject , a Jewish patron of Gustav Klinpt. The attorney was the grandson of the composer, Schoenberg, who fled from the Nazis to Los Angeles where he lived and composed the rest of his life. Since Altman lived in LA she probably knew the shoenbergs through her husbands music connections.

    Greetings from Jerusalem where on Wednesday we will meet and hear the real life lawyer E. Randol Schoenberg at the International Jewish Genealogy Conference. It will be fun to compare him to the actor who portrayed him and hear more about the story behind Woman In Gold. I loved the movie and was the first to lead clapping when it was over. You must see the movie Donne and I nominate YOU to win the contest!

  15. What a wonderful story and a great way to share the accomplishment of a strong woman! We need to continue to tell stories and help our children to celebrate their history!
