Argo is a 2012 American historical drama film directed byBen Affleck. It won the academy award for best picture. Screenwriter Chris Terrio adapted the screenplay from the book by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency operative Tony Mendez, The Master of Disguise, and the 2007 Wired article by Joshuah Bearman, "The Great Escape: How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran". The latter deals with the "Canadian Caper", in which Mendez led the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran, Iran, under the guise of filming a science fiction film during the 1979–1981 Iran hostage crisis.

Note that this movie is R rated (language and mild violence).

” Argo” is a film, based on a true story and directed by Ben Affleck. It was about the U.S. embassy in Tehran, Iran, taking 66 American hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge with the Canadian ambassador. Fortunately, they have escaped and hide with the Canadian ambassador for a while. Until the U.S. government calls on extractor Tony Mendez to rescue them. Mendez's plan is to pose as a Hollywood producer scouting locations in Iran and train the refugees to act as his "film" crew. After, many days of waiting for the opportunities to get out of Iran. Finally, they have been safely back to their great home the United States of America.

This relates to what we learning in class because it's similar to the unit we learn about immigrant and what are the push and pull factors. Which leads to the refuge or immigrants to come over another country. In this movie, it not just showing the successful escape plan of the extractor Mendez, but there also show not only the Americans try to escape but some of the Iranians also want to get out of Iran. In my point of view, I will rate this movie 5 out of 5 because of the true story is based on and the excitement it gave to the audience.
