'Argo' (Oct. 12)

Short Story:
Based on a true story, Argo is centered around the covert operation to rescue six Americans kidnapped during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. In order to save them, CIA operative Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) enlists his team to become a fake documentary movie crew, which will lead them to the hostages taking shelter at the Canadian ambassador's home. Also starring Bryan Cranston as a CIA officer and Alan Arkin as a Hollywood producer who finds himself playing a key role in the operation.

What They're Saying:
"Affleck's Argo is an oddball mix of political thriller and movie biz satire, flicking between Tehran and Tinseltown to create an entertaining, if shamelessly embellished account of one of the CIA's strangest operations." -- The Guardian

Good for Kids?
