Movie Review: Argo
Starring: Ben Affleck and Bryan Cranston
When a movie stars Ben Affleck and is produced by George Clooney, you know that it will be pretty good. Then, when you find out Affleck directed it too, you know you’ve got a Hollywood blockbuster on your hands. Based on a true story from 1979, it’s about six Canadian citizens struggling to escape a hostile revolution-era Iran and get back home. The only way out is for a CIA agent (Affleck) to come up with an elaborate ruse to get them out of the country. The plan is to pretend to shoot an American film in Iran using the six hostages as hired actors. Sounds strange, but it will all become clear when you watch it! One of the best movies I’ve seen all year.
