Following the critically acclaimed Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Ben Affleck once again shows his quality as a director with this thriller/dark comedy. In the midst of the Iran hostage crisis of 1979, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies

‘Both funny and thrillingly nerve-wracking, it also cements Affleck’s status as an A-list director.’ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall **** 1/2
