Argo, starring Ben Affleck, won three Oscars and three Baftas earlier this year. See it at Nunney Village Hall on 24 May.
Based on a true story.
Tehran, 1979. Students demanding the extradition from the US of the former Shah to face trial have laid siege to the US Embassy, taking 90 people hostage. However, six American diplomats have managed to escape to the Canadian Embassy, and are in hiding, hoping for a miracle. Exfiltration expert Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) devises a daring ruse: posing as the Producer of a fake Canadian “Star Wars” type movie project filming in the Iranian desert, he plans to smuggle the six out as production crew.
