WATCH: Helen Mirren in ‘Women in Gold’

Helen Mirren stars in the true-story of Maria Altmann, a Jewish refugee forced to flee World War II Vienna, and her fight to reclaim her family’s artwork stolen by the Nazis. The movie revolves around one painting in particular, the portrait of Altmann’s aunt, Adele Bloch-Bauer, painted by Gustave Klimt and considered to be the “Mona Lisa of Austria.” Rounding out the cast is Ryan Renolyds, Katie Homes and Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany.

‘Women in Gold’ is due out April 3.
