The Sparring Partner

The film critiques the jury’s partiality and the sensationalism surrounding the case, offering a compelling yet grim reflection on justice and human nature.

Woman in Gold

In Woman in Gold, Helen Mirren stars as Maria Altmann, an elderly Jewish woman who, six decades after fleeing Nazi-occupied Vienna, seeks to reclaim her family’s possessions seized during the war. Central to her quest is the renowned painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I” by Gustav Klimt, a portrait of her beloved aunt. Teaming up with a determined young lawyer, Randy Schoeberg (Ryan Reynolds), Maria embarks on an arduous legal fight against the Austrian government, which regards these artworks as national treasures. 

On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex chronicles the inspiring journey of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most influential figures in American legal history.
