Woman in Gold

Woman in Gold is a movie about one woman's battle to retrieve a painting stripped from her home in Vienna during the war by the Nazis. Helen Mirren plays Maria Altman who is accompanied by a young lawyer in the fight to gain possession of the painting of her Aunt Adele by Gustav Klimt. Originally entitled, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer not only is taken away from the wealthy Jewish family, the name is changed to Woman in Gold. 

NPR offers more details of this story.

Always a fan of Helen Mirren's performances, I believe this is worth a watch for sure.
