Argo -- Sun., Oct. 14

A+, 5 stars--you can't get much better than that. Bob and I love the movie, "Argo." For those of you not familiar with the true story, this took place in Iran in 1979 at the time of the Iran Hostage Crisis. The American Embassy was stormed and hostages taken. Six American foreign service workers escaped and made their way to the residence of the Canadian ambassador and his wife. 

This movie is based on the true story about how the CIA worked to get them out through cooperation with the Canadian government.

A top-notch thriller is how I would describe this. We were on the edge of our seats through the whole movie! The story-telling is tight, the acting is phenomenal, there's humor, and actual footage of news from the time. Some of those news anchors were so young then.

Bravo to Ben Affleck for directing and George Clooney for producing this blockbuster. 

We recommend you go see it. Four thumbs up from Bob and Susan.
