"ELECTRICALLY SUSPENSEFUL, CUNNING TRUE-LIFE THRILLER"
-Owen Glieberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
As the Iranian Revolution takes over the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, six Americans escape. Now only one man can get them out from behind enemy lines. Tony Mendez is a brillian CIA agent who specializes in impossible escapes, but his new plan is as daring as it is desperate. Disguised as a film crew, Tony and the fugitives must hide in plain sight, where the slightest slipup could end in instant death. Academy Award Winner Ben Affleck directs and stars in a thriller based on an unbelievably true story. The powerful cast includes Emmy Award winners Bryan Cranston and John Goodman, and Academy Award winner Alan Arkin.
I haven't watched this yet, but it looks good and it did win best drama and best director at the Golden Globes.
