Pick of the Week

Argo Box Art

Argo

Ben Affleck directs and leads an all-star cast in this critically-acclaimed, award-winning dramatic thriller set in 1979 behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis. Based on real events, the film tells the true story of the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans hiding out in the Canadian embassy. The CIA turns to their top "exfiltration" specialist, who teams up with Hollywood producers to hatch a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country -- a plan so incredible it could only happen in the movies.
