Aro Recommended Argo


USA 2012, 120 minutes
Dir. Ben Affleck
Rating: [M] Violence and offensive language
Genres: Suspense/Crime, Drama


“A crackerjack political thriller told with intelligence, great period detail and a surprising amount of nutty humor for a serious look at the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-81.”~Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: Oscar-winning thriller based on the fact-based story of a CIA agent's unconventional plans to rescue six American diplomats during the Iranian Revolution.

Bending the facts in service of the genre, this succeeds in compacting a complicated scenario into an accessible entertainment, with Ben Affleck deftly acquitting himself in the dual roles of actor and director, surrounded by an A-team of actors and production professionals.
