Not many Canadian directors would have thought about filming a sci-fi movie during the 1979 Iranian revolution, which changed the country’s history. Yet that is exactly what happens in Argo, when Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) attempts to rescue 6 American citizens from a very dangerous position. Not actually a Canadian filmmaker but a CIA agent, Mendez manages to enter the country with a whole supporting crew, whose destinies then hang in the balance. Based on real-life events that occurred during 1979’s diplomatic crisis between America and Iran, Argo is now available on DVD from Tesco.
