Woman In Gold: Win $50 VISA Card + A Movie....And The Thursday Blog Hop!

I am taking a brief break from #IMATTER day to share a story with you of a woman who knew she mattered, her heritage mattered. 
WOMAN IN GOLD, was released this week (July 7) on Blue-ray DVD, & Digital HD.  It is "a powerful film based on a true story of one woman's fight to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family, starring Academy Award winner Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds."

Now, you can win the movie and a $50 gift card to mark your own moments in history just by following the Rafflecopter below.  I will pull a winner on July 15...you must be in the United States, and you can enter as often as you like.
The prize package is worth $84.99 and is provided by Anchor Bay Entertainment

 From the Studio: WOMAN IN GOLD is the 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 during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Gustav Klimt's famous painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

WOMAN IN GOLD is rated PG-13 for some thematic elements and brief strong language with a running time of 109 minutes. Blu-ray™ and DVD special features include “The Making of WOMAN IN GOLD,” “Feature commentary with Director Simon Curtis and Producer David M. Thompson” and “Stealing Klimt Documentary Trailer,” with an additional piece “Neue Galerie New York Press Conference” available on the Blu-ray™ and Digital Download.

Starring: Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmes, Charles Dance, Elizabeth McGovern, Frances Fisher
Directed by: Simon Curtis
