Woman in Gold Trailer: Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren Hit Court for a Stolen Painting

Check out the first trailer for Woman in Gold, an upcoming drama starring Ryan Reynolds, Helen Mirren, Daniel Brühl and Katie Holmes.

Based on a true story, Woman in Gold tells of a Jewish refugee (Mirren) who hires a young lawyer (Reynolds) to help her retrieve a family painting the Nazis stole in WWII.

There’s no doubt that this story could make for some great viewing, but the first Woman in Gold trailer is a little too generic to provide us with much excitement. Still, the impressive cast certainly can’t hurt, and director Simon Curtis’ My Week with Marilyn was a decent film, so there’s a chance this could be worth a watch. Fingers crossed.

Official synopsis for Woman in Gold:

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.
