Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), an elderly Jewish woman living in Los Angeles, enlists the help of a young lawyer (Ryan Reynolds) to fight the Austrian government for a painting that the Nazis had stolen from her family some sixty years earlier. The painting in question is Gustav Klimt's work titled "The Lady in Gold," a masterpiece that the Austrian government refuses to give up without a fight, a battle that leads all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
