About the Film
On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top "exfiltration" specialist, Tony Mendez, to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.
Incredibly well made movie
This film is gripping because its actually true..yes there is poetic licence and there's the back drop of tension sprinkled with drama. I loved this film as it has heart. Just give it a watch and reward yourself with an honest well acted drama.
Oscar winning film... for the right reasons
Great film. See it. Probably the best thing Affleck's done. This is the way forward.
Best film I have ever seen.
