Helen Mirren Fights for Art in the First Trailer for 'Woman in Gold'
"She was taken off the walls of our home by the Nazis." In what feels like The Monuments Men meets Philomena, the first trailer has arrived for Woman in Gold. The drama hails from My Week with Marilyn director Simon Curtis and follows the real-life journey of Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), a woman who was forced out of her home during World War II and is now in pursuit of a painting of her aunt which was taken by the Nazis. Ryan Reynolds plays an inexperienced and somewhat fluster lawyer trying to help her out. This sounds like it should have been an Oscar contender, but maybe it's a little too touchy feely. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Simon Curtis' Woman in Gold, originally from Apple:
Academy Award winner Helen Mirren stars in the incredible story of Maria Altmann (Helen 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 (Ryan Reynolds), Maria embarks on an epic journey for justice 60 years in the making. Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) directs Woman in Gold from a script by newcomer Alexi Kay Campbell and The Weinstein Company releases the film next spring April 3rd, 2015. Sound good?
