Synopsis

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. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA 'exfiltration' specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) 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.

    I hope Heathman puts the Iranian Hostage Crisis on the vocab quiz tomorrow, that way I can just talk about the movie Argo #apushprobs

    Just finished watching Argo. Best movie I've seen in a while - and I don't even like Ben Affleck! Surprisingly very well directed and acted.
