- What It's about: A CIA specialist (Ben Affleck) is tasked with getting six hostages out of Iran in 1979.
- What I thought: This drama, based on a true story, was one of the best films I saw at the festival. The whole ensemble, including Bryan Cranston and Alan Arkin, gives fantastic performances. Affleck doesn't just contribute as an actor; he directed the film, and it's his best directorial effort so far. Argo was one of the best-reviewed movies of the festival, and I'm sure this is only the beginning of award buzz for the film.
- Watch the trailer for Argo.
