The Louisiana International Film Festival and Louisiana Film Society will screen “Woman in Gold,” a drama starring Helen Mirren, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, at Cinemark Perkins Rowe in Baton Rouge.
Mirren plays Maria Altmann, a Holocaust survivor who, with the help of a young lawyer, played by Ryan Reynolds, battles the Austrian government for nearly a decade to reclaim a Gustav Klimt painting of her aunt, “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.”
Nazis stole the portrait from Altmann’s relatives in Vienna before World War II. Daniel Bruhl and Katie Holmes co-star with Mirren and Reynolds in “Woman in Gold.”
Admission to the screening is free but reservations are required. To reserve a seat, visit the film society’s website at www.lifilmfest.org/events.
“Woman in Gold” will be the society’s final monthly screening before the Louisiana International Festival opens May 7. The festival is selling a limited number of all-access passes for $100). The passes will guarantee seats at the pre-release “Woman In Gold” screening if purchased prior to Tuesday’s showing.
