Saving Art and Fighting Nazis with ‘Monuments Men’

Our latest World War II caper film is Monuments Men, starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, Hugh Bonneville, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and Bob Balaban. It’s about a group of men assembled to rescue precious works of art stolen by the Nazis during the war.

The film, which is also co-written and directed by Clooney, is sort of Saving Private Ryan meets Inglourious Basterds meets Ocean’s Fourteen: Art Party. Anyway, it’ll certainly be more fun than The Ides of March.
