Movies based on historical events can sometimes feel anachronistic. They might be interesting and engaging, but not particularly relevant to the world we live in today. Woman in Gold doesn't fall into that trap. Not only is this John Grisham-esque courtroom drama an engaging David-vs.-Goliath tale, its poignant and painful recollection of the Holocaust feels like an important reminder at a very critical point in our history, a time when violent anti-Semitism is again on the rise across Europe. And Woman in Gold manages to make its hard-hitting points without delving into the kind of hard-core content that many other films chronicling European Jews' tragic plight under Hitler's murderous Third Reich deliver. So its reach can be more properly extended as it confronts us with a sobering reminder of what evil leaders and the regimes in their thrall are capable of if left unchecked.
