Reviews for this film from our members:
Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
Excerpt: Respectable is the best term for Woman in Gold.
Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
Excerpt: A rousing drama about a Jewish refugee who is looking for closure on her terrible past and a young lawyer who matures spiritually.
Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]
Excerpt: Un retrato por encargo que a pesar de la actuación de Helen Mirren es llevado por su director, Simon Curtis, a ser una película absolutamente previsible.
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies [French]
Excerpt: What we get here is a film that understands that context matters.
Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
Excerpt: ‘Woman in Gold’ is part court drama, part survivor’s tale, adeptly relaying the emotional journey on which an odd couple embark in the name of justice related to WWII.
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Shrewdly compelling – with the incomparable Helen Mirren as the refined yet tartly obdurate propelling force.
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: A deeply moving and very satisfying piece of entertainment that knits up seemingly disparate elements in a tapestry of family pain and pride.

Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
Excerpt: The spirit of Philomena lives on!
Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
Excerpt: Mirren is as excellent as always in the lead, but the actress is let down by the filmmaker’s inclination to be so cliched on occasion, undermining this narrative with frustrating conventionality.
Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
Excerpt: Não tão mau como o pintam, mas também não tão bom como poderia ser
Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
Excerpt: The story behind the painting is a fascinating one, and Woman in Gold, directed by Simon Curtis, is an entirely sufficient – if unspectacular – retelling that intercuts Marie Altmann’s early life and emigration from Nazi-ruled Austria with her court battles more than fifty years later.
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: The behind-the-camera contributions–along with Mirren’s presence–mark this as a prestige production, but the unsubtle, prosaic treatment–along with the bland Reynolds–vitiates the effort.
