Reviews:
"Swapping her native British accent for an impeccable Austrian one, Helen Mirren brings a zesty eccentricity to the role of Maria Altmann..." - 03/31/2015 A.V. Club


"[I]t’s a fascinating story...beautifully photographed and greatly elevated by a brilliant performance from the invaluable Helen Mirren." - 03/31/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


"One of the film’s small pleasures is the sometimes contentious relationship between Randy, Reynolds’s earnest whippersnapper of an attorney, and his somewhat starchy senior-citizen client. It adds a bit of crackle to the film." - 03/31/2015 Washington Post


"Not only does it have more than enough narrative to go around. It is blessed with Helen Mirren, lusciously luminous even with aging makeup as Maria Altmann." - 04/01/2015 RogerEbert.com


"[T]he film does have an asset that can't be ignored, and that's Helen Mirren's tip-top performance as the film's costar." - 03/31/2015 Los Angeles Times


"Although Maria lives modestly, as embodied by Ms. Mirren, she is a woman of enormous cultural refinement....Assuming a clipped Viennese accent and maintaining a rigid posture, she exudes a keen-eyed patrician composure." - 03/31/2015 New York Times


"[I]t’s based on the compelling true story of Maria Altmann, a WWII refugee who fought to win back the titular Gustav Klimt portrait decades after Nazis ransacked her family’s Vienna home. Mirren is formidable as Altmann..." - 04/02/2015 Entertainment Weekly


"[Mirren's] sheer unconquerable vitality leaps off the screen. As Maria Altmann, the claimant in question, she gives a spirited turn..." - 04/06/2015 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he stirring true story is this drama’s standout feature." - 04/02/2015 Empire


"[I]t stars Helen Mirren, who really isn’t anyone’s idea of a loser....Her sheer unconquerable vitality leaps off the screen." - 04/06/2015 Total Film
