Oscar-winning adrenaline ride directed by and starring Ben Affleck as a CIA spook who specialises in 'exfiltration' - extracting people from sticky situations. None come much stickier than six American government officials stranded in Iran following the Tehran embassy siege. They're holed up with the Canadian ambassador but it's only a matter of time before the brutal Revolutionary Guard twigs where they are. Cue Affleck's Tony Mendez, a resourceful fixer who hits on the idea of pretending the six are a Canadian film crew scouting locations for the fictitious sci-fi film Argo.
