Description

The Friends of Middle Street Synagogue are delighted to welcome you to a screening of Woman in Gold (109 mins Cert 12).

Simon Curtis' remarkable true story of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt's painting 'The Lady in Gold'.

The evening will begin in the beautiful synagogue with a tour, followed by a short introduction to the film. Then we'll cross the street for the screening at The Werks Central. Food and drinks will be available to purchase. (All strictly kosher).

All proceeds from this event will go towards the Restoration of Middle Street Synagogue.

'This movie is just flawless in any category; acting, cinematography, sound, locations, story flow. Helen Mirren is of course the star but everybody else involved were perfect also. Telling the young woman's life story, their hair-raising escape from Nazi occupation, and at the same time describing the red tape involved in trying to get back stolen family property by the Nazi's 50 years prior is just a stunning accomplishment. But, the icing on the cake, which they could have ignored, is how most of the population of Austria (and other European countries) colluded with the Nazi's.

This is such an incredible movie, it should be required screening in high schools, it should never be forgotten what happens when hate and prejudice team up with apathy. No graphic violence is required to get the message across - classy all the way'. 8/10 (rmart-46-626964 IMDb reviewer)
