The plot: In 1979, militants storm the US Embassy in Tehran and hold 52 Americans hostage. Six members of staff escape to the nearby residence of the Canadian ambassador and hide in a basement crawl space. CIA extractor Tony Mendez concocts an elaborate scheme to rescue the sextet from the danger zone: he will pose as a film producer who has come to Iran to scout for locations for a sci-fi epic called Argo.

Time Out

"For 100 minutes, Argo is close to flawless."


"An entertaining, if shamelessly embellished account of one of the CIA's strangest operations."

Rolling Stone

"Ben Affleck doesn't merely direct Argo, he directs the hell out of it, nailing the quickening pace, the wayward humor, the nerve-frying suspense. There's no doubt he's crafted one of the best movies of the year."
