With a date change, we now have a few more weeks wait until George Clooney’s The Monuments Men arrives in theaters. Date changes are never a good thing, but I am still hopeful for this WW2 film. If anything, the delay gives us a chance to read the book by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter.
Synopsis: Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action-thriller 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 Michelangelo than the M-1 – 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 achievements.
The Monuments Men opens on February 7th, 2014.
