Movie preview: “The Monuments Men”

Rated: PG-13 for some images of war violence and historical smoking

Running time: 1 hr 58 min

Cast: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin

Plot: As the Third Reich begins to topple, the German army receives orders to destroy every work of art in their possession. Determined to prevent 1,000 years of culture from going up in flames, American president FDR assembles an unlikely World War II platoon of seven art experts and tasks them with going behind enemy lines and recovering some of the world’s greatest works. With little knowledge of modern weapons or warfare tactics, the ragtag squadron successfully makes their way into enemy territory before realizing they’ve got their work cut out for them. Based on the true story.
