Showing through March 6: “MONUMENTS MEN” — George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray star in this largely unknown story of World War II. The film is based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history. The dramatic thriller focuses on an unlikely U.S. Army platoon tasked 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 1,000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements. Monuments Men” is showing through Thursday, March 6 at the Dells Theatre. 130 minutes. It’s rated PG-13 for some images of war violence and historical smoking.
