Overview
As the Iranian Revolution takes over the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, six Americans escape. Now only one man can get them out from behind enemy lines. Tony Mendez is a brilliant CIA agent who specializes in impossible escapes, but his new plan is as daring as it is desperate. Disguised as a film crew, Tony and the fugitives must hide in plain sight, where the slightest slipup could end in instant death. Academy Award® winner* Ben Affleck directs and stars in a thriller based on an unbelievably true story. The powerful cast includes Emmy Award winners Bryan Cranston and John Goodman, as well as Academy Award® winner* Alan Arkin.

*Affleck – 1997: Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen for Good Will Hunting. Arkin – 2006: Actor in a Supporting Role for Little Miss Sunshine.
