Argo, the film that swept the board during 2013’s awards season and marked Ben Affleck as a key Hollywood player, is set during the Iranian revolution in 1979 and based on a true story.
Part espionage thriller, part entertaining movie-business satire, it tells the tale of a CIA operative Tony Mendez (Affleck) who attempts to rescue six American diplomats from Iran with a plan so absurd it might actually work. Concocting a fake sci-fi movie “Argo”, complete with script and director, he attempts to pass off the diplomats as a Canadian film crew in order to get them out of the country.
