Ben Affleck’s highly-anticipated political thriller Argo is coming to New Zealand cinemas October 25, and A Fistful of Culture have one in-season double pass to giveaway everyday this week (22-26 October) thanks to Roadshow Films. Affleck stars alongside an incredible ensemble — including Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Chris Messina, Michael Parks, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, and Taylor Schilling — and this must-see film is not only Affleck’s finest directorial work so far, but also one of the very best films of the year and a strong awards contender.

Based on true events, Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades.
On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, 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 out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez 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.
