Based on true events, Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis - the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “ex-filtration” specialist named Tony Mendez comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.
This movie is critically acclaimed and has won and been nominated for many awards including Movie of the Year, Best Screenplay, Special Achievement in Filmmaking and Best Director.
The cast includes Ben Affleck, Alan Arkin, Taylor Schilling and John Goodman.
