Argo is based on real events that took place during the Iranian revolution in 1979, when the US embassy in Teheran was stormed by revolutionaries and 52 American citizens were taken hostage. However, six of them managed to escape and take refuge at the Canadian ambassador’s home. The CIA has to get them home without the Iranian authorities knowing what’s going on, so they need to organise a secret high-risk operation. Agent Toni Mendez devises a plan fraught with danger to get them out safely, an incredible idea that could only work out in a film. The events described in the film were concealed from public opinion for decades.

Argo is Affleck’s third film as a director, after Gone Baby, Gone and The Town, and is produced by Affleck himself, the actor and director George Clooney and Grant Heslov. Apart from Affleck, the cast also includes John Goodman and Alan Arkin, who won an Oscar for best supporting actor for Little Miss Sunshine.
