Argo

The movie was fake. The mission was real.
Good help is so hard to find...
Good help is so hard to find...
Set during the Iranian hostage crises back in 1980, and based on real events. When their embassy was invaded, six American diplomats sought refuge in the Canadian embassy. The CIA then hatched a plan to rescue them, that involved pretending to make a sci-fi movie in Iran, and letting the diplomats masquerade as crew. How this plan played out in practice makes for exciting and comical viewing. The film was nominated for seven Oscars and has numerous other nominations and wins.
