It's the 1940s and with World War II at its most fierce, Hitler's Nazi army is threatening whole worlds of culture and history. He wants entire generations to be wiped from time but America isn't going to let it happen. The government set up a Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, enlisting seven men - from art historians to museum curators - to march headfirst in the conflict and rescue important art masterpieces and artefacts from the thieving hands of the Nazis. Having only been given basic training and with very little time to waste, the brave men thrust themselves in the face of danger to protect mankind's history no matter what the consequences. With enemies everywhere and a terrain covered in landmines, the journey will not be a straightforward one.
'The Monuments Men' is a heartwarming and often comedic adventure based on the true story documented in the book 'The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History' by Robert M. Edsel. It has been directed by George Clooney ('Leatherheads', 'The Ides of March', 'Good Night, and Good Luck.') who, as well as starring in it, also wrote the screenplay alongside his frequent writing partner Grant Heslov. It is set to be released on January 9th 2014.
