Film Screening: Woman in Gold

The true story of an elderly Jewish refugee living in Los Angeles who, together with her young lawyer, fought the government of Austria for almost a decade to reclaim Gustav Klimt's iconic painting of her aunt, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, the "Woman in Gold," which was stolen from her relatives by the Nazis in Vienna just before World War II. This legal battle resulted in the US Supreme Court ruling against the Republic of Austria. An intriguing and thought-provoking movie that will keep you in suspense.
