When six American foreign service employees (Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Christopher Denham, Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishé, and Rory Cochrane) become trapped in the home of the Canadian ambassador (Victor Garber) and his wife after zealous rioters storm the American Embassy in Tehran on Nov. 4, 1979, and take the remaining staff hostage for 444 days in this Oscar-winning, suspenseful, well-acted, factually based, enthralling, humor-punctuated, star-studded (Bryan Cranston,, Richard Kind, Kyle Chandler, Chris Messina, Philip Baker Hall, Adrienne Barbeau, Zeljko Ivanek, Bob Gunton, Taylor Schilling, and Rory Cochrane), 2-hour political thriller based on Antonio J. Mendez's book The Master of Disguise and Joshuah Bearman's magazine article The Great Escape, a courageous CIA exfiltration (aka extraction) specialist (Ben Affleck) gets a harebrained idea to have the scared six Americans pose as Canadian filmmakers scouting Iranian locations for their science fiction film Argo with the help of an award-winning Hollywood producer (Alan Arkin) and a Oscar-winning makeup artist (John Goodman).
