Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds Pursue Justice and Stolen Art in Trailer for Weinstein Co.’s ‘Woman in Gold’ (VIDEO)

Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds Pursue Justice and Stolen Art in Trailer for Weinstein Co.'s 'Woman in Gold' (VIDEO)

In the new trailer for The Weinstein Company’s “Woman in Gold,” produced by BBC Films and slated for U.S. release in April, Helen Mirren plays Jewish refugee and Holocaust survivor Maria Altmann, whose Aunt Adele inspired Gustav Klimt’s famed “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.” Living in Los Angeles, she conscripts Ryan Reynolds’ green attorney to help her reclaim the painting, stolen by the Nazis during World War II, from Austria.

Based on a true story, “Woman in Gold” features both broad humor — German-accented Mirren planning to buy “perfume and cognac” at the airport duty-free — and period drama — “Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany plays young Maria in a series of flashbacks. Likely an adult crowd-pleaser in the vein of Fox Searchlight’s hit “The Exotic Marigold Hotel” or Mirren’s recent “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the film is directed by Simon Curtis (“My Week with Marilyn”). The cast also includes Katie Holmes, Daniel Bruhl (“Rush”), and Elizabeth McGovern (“Downton Abbey.”)
