Here is the synopsis for “Argo”:
Based on real events, the dramatic thriller “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis – the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. Academy Award winner Ben Affleck (“The Town,” “Good Will Hunting”) directs and stars in the film, which is produced by Oscar nominee Grant Heslov (“Good Night, and Good Luck.”), Affleck and Oscar winner George Clooney (“Syriana”).
On Nov. 4, 1979 as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran – taking 52 Americans hostage. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it’s only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. It’s a plan so incredible it could only happen in the movies.
“Argo” also stars Bryan Cranston (TV’s “Breaking Bad”), Oscar winner Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and John Goodman (“Trouble With the Curve”). The main cast also includes Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Scoot McNairy, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler and Chris Messina.
Affleck directed the film from a screenplay by Chris Terrio based on a selection from “The Master of Disguise” by Antonio J. Mendez and the Wired Magazine article “The Great Escape” by Joshuah Bearman. David Klawans, Nina Wolarsky, Chris Brigham, Chay Carter, Graham King and Tim Headington are the executive producers with Amy Herman co-producing. Filming on “Argo” was accomplished in Los Angeles, Istanbul and D.C.
