October 15th - The Monuments Men

news

An all-star cast. Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners.

An impossible mission: seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than Hitler - how can they possibly hope to succeed?

But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest works of Art.
