    Well-done dramatization of an actual event.

    Well acted production. The main characters were artfully portrayed and came across as real people, who had both strengths and flaws. This movie is appealing because it is based on facts...facts that are accurately presented. The story itself is a serious drama, and yet there are enough depictions of humorous actions and comments to lighten what could have been a somber story. The conclusion elated me! I enjoy movies that end happily and give hope. I definitely felt better after watching it.

    Im a huge Ryan Reynolds fan, so I was very excited to hear about him in a movie with Helen Mirren. The movie is a unique story of past and present. I have to say it was told perfectly. The flashback scenes to the war, were the best parts. Tatiana Masalany (Orphan Black) was fantastic, and her scenes really brought some suspense to an otherwise normal paced drama. Good Bonus features included as well. Definitely worth checking out!

    I don't know the story behind the movie, but I did recognize the painting and whether it was historically accurate or not I was very moved by the movie and now would like to get more background to see how accurate it was. If you have a hard time with World War II movies, this one does not show a lot of violence. It deals more with the injustices of what was done to the Jewish people.

    We like to buy BluRay sets that include DVD and Digital versions so we can watch using any of our currently-owned devices. This set was BluRay and Digital Copy so we got two of the three versions. The movie itself was was good, and we enjoyed it and the history of the story. I am not sure why it didn't receive better reviews. I am glad we didn't skip watching it.

    Bought this DVD based on previews we saw in the theater. We were not disappointed. The story of a woman who fights to reclaim a valuable painting of her ancestor that was stolen by the Germans during WW II. Both she and her lawyer show the courage it takes to fight the bureaucracy to a successful conclusion.

    Justice can be hard to come by when you have to fight the "system" and red tape of the government. This movie shows regardless of the outcome right is right and to follow your heart when it is driven to correct an injustice, no matter the outcome. A true story and must see, if you believe in "justice".

    Based on a true story (don't look it up to find out how it ends), Mirren's character goes up against her country's government to recover a painting that was lost in the war. While it doesn't sound like the most fascinating drama ever, it really is a lovely film and well worth watching.

    The production quality of this movie is excellent in every way. While the story is factual it is highly entertaining and the ending is very satisfying. The Blu-ray version of "Woman in Gold" is a "must have" for serious collectors of well-made and well-acted motion pictures.
