Director: Ben Affleck
Cast: Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman
Origin: United States
Funny and nail-bitingly tense, the film tells the true story of how a CIA “exfilt” man (Affleck) helped smuggle six U.S. embassy employees out of Iran in 1980 by passing them off as a Canuck film crew. John Goodman and Alan Arkin have great fun as the Hollywood insiders who help build the cover story - a cheesy space opera that hopes to film in Iran. As one character puts it: “This is the best bad idea we have, by far.”
