Argo

Ben Affleck is on course to hit a hat-trick as a director with this meticulously recreated, gripping and often surprisingly funny recreation of one of the great clandestine CIA operations of all time. In the late 1970s, six US embassy workers in Iran went into hiding at the home of the Canadian ambassador in the midst of an anti-US uprising. If they were found, they would be executed as spies. Cue an audacious rescue attempt marshaled by CIA agent Tony Mendez (Affleck), who teamed up with a Hollywood producer to conjure up a fictional film – Argo – as a cover for entering Iran and leaving with the embassy workers. The truth can often be stranger than fiction, and never more so than here.

When will we see it in the UK? November 9

1 RE:
Isn't Ryan Gosling's latest thriller 'The Place Beyond the Pines' screening? If so, why didn't it make the top 20 list? It's been attracting some seriously good reviews....My must see for 2013. More

5 Great cast + great creative team = unexpected crap
Saw a special preview of "Seven Psychopaths" in New York yesterday, and it turned out to be a huge disappointment. It starts out really well, then just degenerates into a huge, unfunny mess. It was like two different movies, neither of which was any good. Avoid, avoid, avoid. Just watch the brilliant "In Bruges" again More
