Based on real events, thriller ‘Argo’ reveals the previously classified truth behind the miraculous escape of six Americans during the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979.
Directed by and starring Ben Affleck (‘The Town’, ‘Armageddon’), the film takes us deep into enemy territory as CIA ‘exfiltration’ specialist Tony Mendez masterminds a daring plan to whisk the U.S. citizens to safety from the chaos of a country gripped by revolutionary fervour and anti-American sentiment.
Argo also features Bryan Cranston (‘Drive’) and John Goodman (‘The Artist’).
