The incredible true story of Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren) is put on display in the first trailer and poster for The Weinstein Films' The Woman in Gold. The Weinstein Company and BBC Films have set an April 3, 2015 release date for this upcoming true life drama, providing some counter-programming by going up against Universal's potential blockbuster Furious 7. While it remains to be seen if The Woman in Gold will put up anywhere near Furious 7's box office totals, the film will surely provide a solid alternative for those who aren't seeking high-octane entertainment that weekend.
Academy Award winner Helen Mirren stars in the incredible story of Maria Altmann, 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.
Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmes, Charles Dance, Elizabeth McGovern and Frances Fisher co-star in this drama from filmmaker Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn), which was co-produced by The Weinstein Films and BBC Films. Check out the first footage and the poster below, before this upcoming drama hits theaters this spring.
