Elevator Pitch Six American embassy workers are trapped in a friendly embassy in Iran during the 1980 hostage crisis. The CIA pretend to be a film crew assessing location for the film “Argo” while developing a means of rescuing them.
Content Some violence, lots of tension as they get to the point where they may all escape.
A View A really good film. Although I do not forgive the scriptwriter for portraying the British Embassy as refusing the Americans access, when in the real event they actually harboured them. Typical American view of the Brits.
