Screen Play: TIFF 2012 Argo
The stars: Ben Affleck, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Bryan Cranston, Chris Messina, and many others
The gist: Affleck directs the fluid, entertaining political thriller during which a group of CIA agents concocts a ruse to free six American hostages from Tehran during the Iranian revolution. The ruse? They’re posing as a Canadian film crew making a movie about a cosmic war called Argo. Lots of feathered hair, oversize spectacles, and Led Zeppelin.
The buzz: No one’s said a bad thing about it yet. The flick looks like prime Oscar meat.
