Director : Ben Affleck
CIA's best exfiltrator Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck)'s account of the historical rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran, Iran during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. To get the diplomats stuck in the turmoil, out of Iran, Tony Mendez gets together an unlikely team comprising of a prosthetics expert - John Chambers and a well known Hollywood producer - Lester Siegel to create a fake movie "Argo", from which the actual movie derives it's title. The team (with funding from the US government and help from the Canadian government) go to great lengths to make the fake movie as "real" as possible. With this fake movie background, Tony Mendez attempts an audacious rescue attempt to get the shaken up diplomats out of Tehran.
