The Monuments Men

Cate Blanchett in Columbia Pictures' THE MONUMENTS MEN.

Twentieth Century Fox is pleased to present the Lone Heroine Featurette from The Monuments Men.

Watch as Cate Blanchett talks about her character, Claire Simone, the lone heroine of the Monuments Men.

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men focuses 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 is released in cinemas February 14.
