More Info:
  • Rex Reed

    It’s a touching film that entertains with warmth and humor while teaching us something about history, law and justice with enormous heart, subtlety and compassion, brilliantly acted and skillfully written. Is there anything Helen Mirren cannot do?

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    Even with a starry cast, the stirring true story is this drama’s standout feature.

    Empire Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The transformation of Reynold's lawyer from a bumbler and stumbler to a victorious litigator, sticking it to an entire nation, is the stuff of a Frank Capra/Jimmy Stewart pic.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Woman in Gold is arguably of more interest for its historical perspective than for its drama. Although there is some suspense in the courtroom proceedings, no one would mistake this for the next "To Kill a Mockingbird" or "The Verdict."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Simon Curtis’ Woman in Gold is a shamelessly sentimental fictionalization of this true story, but it’s a fascinating story nonetheless, beautifully photographed and greatly elevated by a brilliant performance from the invaluable Helen Mirren.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mark Adams

    Though perhaps lacking in a real sense of dramatic tension; veering towards the schmaltzy at times and needing a far tighter ending, Woman In Gold is still a thoroughly enjoyable story, engagingly told and with a nice line in gentle humour to balance the legal battle structure which can veer to dryness at times.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Even Helen Mirren, the Queen Midas of class acting, can’t fix this well-intentioned miss.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The Woman in Gold works, largely because of the odd-couple chemistry between Mirren and Reynolds. It just goes to show that broad strokes are appealing when they’re in the right frame.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    While Mirren unquestioningly rules this roost, one cast member’s late arrival onscreen did get the audience murmuring in recognition. Namely, Lady Grantham herself — Elizabeth McGovern — who appears as a judge during one of the key moments in the legal case. One can assume that the “Downton Abbey” star took the slim part as a favor for her husband, who happens to be the director. Full Review
  • Simon Houpt

    Director Simon Curtis milks the predictable drama, thrills and heartache of the Holocaust-era story, but it’s a paint-by-numbers triumph, a copy of something we’ve seen many times before.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Stirring at times, soggy and overly sentimental at others, the film moves surprisingly slow, even though its action, which takes place over many years of legal maneuvering, has been condensed for narrative expediency.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Trevor Johnston

    Mirren’s performance movingly evokes the travails and rewards of seeking an accommodation with a nightmare past. Yet the clunky, often superficial movie around her tames the anger and anguish of memory in favour of a well-meaning but pat, feelgood ‘prestige’ product.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Philip Kemp

    A plodding, predictable script hampers this tale of a real-life legal battle. But it’s redeemed by a vital central performance – and some vivid flashbacks.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Serena Donadoni

    What Woman in Gold has over nonfiction portrayals is emotion, and director Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn) milks every scene for its heart-tugging potential.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's a shame that a movie centered on such a powerful and unique work of art is itself so obviously a corporate product.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    An early contender for the most Weinstein movie of the year, Woman In Gold bends a complicated legal quagmire—heavy on questions of ownership and national responsibility—into a crowd-pleasing David and Goliath story. The title, too generic for Klimt’s masterpiece, suits the movie just fine.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The production design is swank, the score impassioned. We should be riveted. Instead, you may feel you’ve seen this movie before, and, in a sense, you have: Woman in Gold plays remarkably like 2013’s “Philomena” with a change of cast and a different historical outrage.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    There's really no other word for what Helen Mirren is doing in certain reaction shots, out of subtle interpretive desperation: mugging. She's mugging. She is a sublimely talented performer, and this is material with fascinating implications, and I doubt there's a moviegoer in the world who doesn't like Helen Mirren. But even the best actors need a director to tell them to tone it down.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s a labored film thanks to trite dialogue, to interesting characters like a “good Austrian” journalist (Daniel Bruhl) who wants his country held accountable who are given short shrift, and to the many court scenes have a hint of humor, but no spark.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Reynolds is a good actor but he's miscast. Mirren is great, and she makes Woman in Gold better than it otherwise would have been. Still, it's just kind of boring and straightforward, even if its inspiration is not.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Even the great Helen Mirren can do only so much to elevate this relentlessly mediocre, fact-inspired drama.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    It's regrettable that Woman in Gold is no more than adequate, more old-fashioned Hollywoodization than incisive modern dramatization.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matt Brennan

    The film evades all but the most careful commonplaces about the relationship between the viewer and the work of art at its center.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    Woman in Gold is ultimately a worthy endeavour even when it is not entirely successful.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Gustav Klimt’s spectacular painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I far outshines this pedestrian movie about the legal battle waged by Maria Altmann (Mirren), the niece of the portrait’s subject, to regain possession of the work which was seized from her family by the Nazis during their takeover of Austria.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Apart from Ms. Mirren’s performance, Woman in Gold smugly and shamelessly pushes familiar buttons.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Director Simon Curtis and first-time screenwriter Alexi Kaye Campbell constantly push too hard and too forcefully, laying on schmaltz where none is needed.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • David Rooney

    While Helen Mirren elevates the material with her usual aplomb and the events being depicted inevitably are stirring, this is a stodgy crusade-for-justice drama, directed and written with minimal flair.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    The film seems to think the mere presence of Mirren as a wisecracking widow will be enough for us to forgive it a multitude of sins.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    This is manufactured sentiment, less interested in provoking thought than in manipulating emotion, constructed of human obstacles overcome, stirring speeches delivered and heart-rending flashbacks unveiled, all suspended like so much Spam in the jelly of its own score.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    Is it fair to make Woman in Gold representative of the failings of the whole historical-true-story-designed-to-remind-an-older-skewing-middle-class-white-audience-that-people-have-triumphed-over-adversity genre? Perhaps not, but as one of its most egregious and fallacious examples, it's as good a line to draw in the sand as any.
