This is a facinating dramatization of the events in Iran. I had forgotten the story and fortunately, I didn't review history. Glad I didn't...made the movie much more enjoyable. Go see it! It does make Carter out to be a bit of a dope, but we already knew that. I'm sure the events didn't go off as shown, but I liked the tension the movie generated. I'm not a fan of Aflack or Clooney, but is was worth it with this movie.
