Storyline

Maria Altman sought to regain a world famous painting of her aunt plundered by the Nazis during World War II.

Factor

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

When Randy Schoenberg is before the Supreme Court, he is shown being asked a convoluted question by Chief Justice William Rehnquist, whereupon Schoenberg admits he doesn't understand it. That question was actually posed by Justice David Souter. The reaction from the other justices, who also didn't understand the question, was accurately depicted. See more »

Well, *I* liked it!
7 April 2015 | by QanqorSee all my reviews

I just got home from seeing this film, and I very much enjoyed it. I've been reading some of the negative reviews and trying to understand what they're on about, but I just don't get it. I think it was a great film and I'm glad I saw it. OK, maybe following all the legal machinations gets a little dry at points, but I'm happy with this. It means that the film makers *respect* the story. This isn't one of those atrocities that claims to be based on history, but in fact plays so fast-and-loose with the facts that what you are getting is almost entirely fiction (yes, "The Imitation Game", I'm looking at *you*). While I don't know the details of the actual history in this case, from what I'm able to make out it seems like this film stays pretty true to the facts. I, for one, am glad they resisted the trend of schmaltzing the thing up.
