Woman in Gold

Movies about Nazi art loot seem to be the in-thing at the moment. The latest is Woman in Gold starring Dame Helen Mirren as Maria Altman, an Austrian Jewess who took Austria to court to recover this famous painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907) by Gustav Klimt. Adele Bloch-Bauer was friend and patron of Klimt. She was Maria Altman's aunt. The film goes on general release tomorrow (CLICK).
