Let’s watch the first official trailer of Woman in Gold, the upcoming drama movie directed by Simon Curtis and starring Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmes, Tatiana Maslany, Max Irons, Antje Traue, Charles Dance, Elizabeth McGovern, and Frances Fisher:
WOMAN IN GOLD
“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.”

The release date of Woman in Gold is set to April 3, 2015.
