This Week at the Movies... The Monuments Men

March 14, 2014
Traer Star-Clipper

Showing this weekend at the Traer Theatre is the new feature The Monuments Men. Based of 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, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michaelangelo than the M-1 - possibly hope to succeed? Bust as 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 achievements. This feature is rated PG-13 and has a runtime of 130 minutes.
