Wed. Jan 15th 2020 at 2.0 p.m.  ARGO ​   (USA 2012) In November 1979 the American Embassy in Iran was stormed and its diplomats taken hostage. However, a few of the staff managed to escape and were given shelter in the Canadian Embassy, The pressure was then on the Americans to extract them, before the Iranians discovered them. Argo is how they did so. Ben Affleck is both director and lead actor and handles both roles extremely competently. Also starring Geoffrey Rush and Alan Arkin, the film is funny and exciting and well deserves its Best Picture Oscar.
