  • Cowriter and director George Clooney adapts author Robert M. Edsel's book THE MONUMENTS MEN: ALLIED HEROES, NAZI THIEVES, AND THE GREATEST TREASURE HUNT IN HISTORY to tell the incredible true story of the seven art historians and museum curators who went behind enemy lines during World War II on a mission to recover some of the world's greatest works of art. With war raging in Europe, the Nazis have managed to plunder some of the biggest art collections on the continent. As the Third Reich begins to topple, the German army receives explicit orders that in the event of Adolf Hitler's death, they are to destroy every work of art in their possession. Determined to prevent 1000 years of culture from going up in flames, American president Franklin D. Roosevelt approves a proposal by Frank Stokes (Clooney) to form a task force comprised entirely of art experts to enter Germany, recover the works of art, and ensure they are returned to their rightful owners. With little knowledge of modern weapons or warfare tactics, the ragtag squadron has their work cut out for them. Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin also star.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 4 -- "The work of the MONUMENTS MEN is fresh territory for film, and Clooney builds the story with intriguing detail and scope."
    Rolling Stone

    "Agreeably patterned after classic World War II films in which a small unit of guys trumps the enemy's best-laid plans....A sympathetic account of the urgent U.S.-led effort to save treasure troves of looted artwork hidden by Nazis..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[With an] intrinsically fascinating subject matter and winning cast..."
    USA Today

    "Director and star George Clooney turns the story of curators recovering stolen art from the Nazis into an OCEAN'S 11-style caper."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Mr. Clooney seems to have been harboring a desire to tap into his inner Gregory Peck...as he does in THE MONUMENTS MEN, which he both directed and stars in."
    New York Times
