Undoubtdedly one of the best movies in a long, long time. Based on a true story, the story was GREAT, the actors SUPERB, and the credits at the end were worth seeing. Well done. Ben Affleck was stoick, the other cast members were incredibly beliveable. I registered for the draft that same year and thought I would be fighting Iranians then. Thank goodness it never came to that. The Shah was a prick, our government was wrong for supporting him. But those poor ambassadors were sitting ducks. Go see it. You won't be dissapointed.
