Argo (Chris Terrio & Joshuah Bearman)
With few options, exfiltration expert Tony Mendez devises a daring plan: to create a phoney Canadian film looking to shoot in Iran and smuggle the Americans out as its production crew. With the help of some trusted Hollywood contacts, Mendez proceeds to Iran as its associate producer.
However, time is running out with the Iranian security forces closing in on the truth while everyone back in the States is having great doubts about the operation itself.
Starring: Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Scoot McNairy, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler, Chris Messina
Why I loved this film: I had never heard of this story until now, and I must say I found it to be an extremely well done and moving feature in every aspect. Very funny and witty at the right times, 'Argo' showed to be a marvel including just the right cast - which should be expected, considering Ben Affleck's directing history -, with a very emotional ending.
