Fifth about The Seventh

Woman in Gold

Woman in GoldWoman in Gold: Simon Curtis juggles too many balls in the air, and the lack of focus results in low-wattage drama; it also relies too much on being an important, true story to focus on being a good, well-told one. Helen Mirren is, as usual, a strong, dignified presence, but either she makes it look too easy or there’s not much to do, as it’s not a particularly interesting character. Ryan Reynolds is severely outmatched in this, to the point of being distracting. Aesthetically, this is an indifferent work.
