Adele's Wish [DVD]

The remarkable story of an 84 year-old Los Angeles woman's struggle to recover five Klimt paintings that were stolen from her family by the Nazis in 1938. For nearly a decade, Maria Altmann and her lawyer, Randol Schoenberg, battled Austria for the return of these incredibly valuable paintings. Although it began as a legal dispute, the struggle quickly turned 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.
