IMDb plot summary: A dramatization of the 1980 joint CIA-Canadian secret operation to extract six fugitive American diplomatic personnel out of revolutionary Iran.
Directed by Ben Affleck. Starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin and John Goodman.
This is a really solid movie. I wouldn't have chosen it for Best Picture over some of the other ones I've seen from the past year, but nor am I upset by its nomination and win. It's a fun, fascinating thriller. Ben Affleck is a much more interesting director than he ever was an actor, although his acting isn't bad in this flick either. Definitely worth a watch. 4 stars.
