Trivia

The real Randol (Randy) Schoenberg, lawyer, is seen in the final scene of Mirren (as Maria Altman, his client) going around and imagining her old apartment, who looks to raise his glass in a toast directly at the camera - so, to her, Maria Altman's POV. See more »

Goofs

While Randol and Maria drive down Sunset Boulevard, a billboard for the 2014 film "Guardians of the Galaxy" appears visibly in the distance down the street while the time period of the scene is supposed to take place in 1999. See more »

There Are All Kinds of People in the World and Some of Them Are Beautiful!
15 April 2015 | by interestingfunstuffSee all my reviews

While this is a deeply moving story, this is the first film about the Holocaust I've ever heard of that is not intensely violent or overwhelmingly gut-wrenching. You could take the whole family to see Woman in Gold without being concerned in the slightest about traumatizing even a child. The story is told in such a straightforward way you get to feel like you are a friend of the Altman and Bloch-Bauer family! It's that intimate! Wow! That's what I call good filmmaking!

The next time you visit New York City I highly recommend visiting The Neue Gallery located on Museum Mile. Seeing the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt in real life is quite an experience! There's good reason why the painting is called the "Mona Lisa of Austria." This is also a story about being a good lawyer.

If you want to be a lawyer someday, this story will give you an idea what a determined and intelligent lawyer can accomplish!
