ABOUT ADELE’S WISH

Adele’s Wish recounts the struggle of 92-year-old Jewish World War II refugee Maria Altmann, a resident of Los Angeles who sued the Republic of Austria to recover five Gustav Klimt paintings stolen from her family in Vienna by the Nazis in 1938. The paintings were considered national treasures by Austria and were proudly displayed in Vienna’s Belvedere Museum for over sixty years. Although it began as a legal dispute, Altmann’s mission evolved into a political, cultural and ethical confrontation. In the process, Austria was forced to re-examine not only its role in Nazi art thefts, but also its anti-Semitic past. Altmann’s story was made into a feature film in 2015, Woman in Gold, starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds. (Not rated | 2009 | 1 hour, 41 minutes)
