Argo won the Academy Award for Best Picture for the year 2012, with good reason. It's exciting and tremendously fun. It's a film that mixes politics with Hollywood, to tremendous success. A group of people decide to pose as a Canadian film crew, wishing to film in Iran. This phony film is established in an effort to smuggle six hostages out of Iran. Ben Affleck really outdoes himself in his acting in and directing of this outstanding motion picture.
