The Reel Review


Helen Mirren shines like bullion in this true story of feisty Maria Altman, who took the Austrian government to the U.S. Supreme Court and beyond to reclaim the famed Gustav Klimt painting (described as Austria’s equivalent of the Mona Lisa) of her aunt that the Nazis stole from her family during the Holocaust. A series of poignant flashbacks help turn an otherwise dry lesson in international law into a touching bittersweet story of sad farewells, past injustice, and hard fought retribution, capped off with an ending that is as beautiful as the painting.
