Hugh Bonneville: The Monuments Men

So I thought I would write a little about Hugh Bonneville after watching “The Monuments Men” this past weekend. For those of you who haven’t seen the monuments men, it’s a very historical movie that takes place during the 2nd world war. Hitler, an artist through school (kicked out), uses his power and might to steal every piece of art in the European nations for his own personal Museum called, “The Fuhrer Museum.”

A group of men encompassing a few Americans (George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, & Bob Balaban ), a Frenchman (Jean Dujardin), a Briton (Hugh Bonneville), and a German seek out priceless historical artwork. As the war is coming to an end, they know that if this artwork is not recovered before the fall of the Nazi’s, the artwork will be burned by the Reich.

Hugh Bonneville’s character is that of Donald Jeffries, an artwork enthusiast and love of the Bruges Madonna. He is a quirky uplifting character with a troubled past. He is a character trying to make up for his past, one that is a dark spot in his life. Hugh is a master of his craft. Being British does help. People should go out and see this movie.
