Argo

In 1979 Iranian rebels surround the American embassy, taking all staff members hostage... well, not quite all. Six manage to escape and take refuge with the Canadian Ambassador (played by Victor Garber). But they are still trapped in the hostile country, so someone (Ben Affleck) needs to come up with a plan to bring them home. This movie is based on a true story. Get the movie review and more. »
