Argo / I love this latest film directed by Ben Affleck already. I’m not one that is too into political films but this story really intrigues me. Part suspense drama, part comedy, the film focuses on the true events of the “Canadian caper”. During the 1979 Iranian hostage crises, a joint covert rescue by the Canadian government and the US CIA was conducted to retrieve six U.S. diplomats held hostage at their embassy in Iran. A CIA agent concocted a plan to convince Iran that the hostages were apart of a film crew sent there to film a sci-fi film called Argo. Sounds funny but its all so true. I think we are in for some great acting, a great story, and some great 70s fashion with this one. Watch the trailer for this film which also stars Kyle Chandlar, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, and Chris Messina:
