My dad was visiting from abroad and stayed with us for a few days. On an evening we had to find something to do that suited both him and Me and Oh. So, a film night!
Argo is a film hubby has waited for ages to watch. My dad and I had heard of it and it won lots oscars so it must be a good choice, right?!
We got some nice drinks and a few nibbles and all settled down to watch.
I am not sure what I was expecting, I knew it was a dramatic thriller with a serious story line, I knew it had the Awesome Ben Affleck both starring in it and directing it and I knew that loads of people had said how good it was, but I didn’t really know the story to come!
The synopsis reads:
“Based on true events, Warner Bros. Pictures’ and GK Films’ dramatic thriller “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.”
Well, we were in for a real treat, it wasn’t a nicey nice film but it was a VERY good film. The story is serious, but this is a good thing, it keeps you really enthralled as you walk the story with them! It really is thrilling, in parts I was feeling the same emotions as the characters, fear, anxiety and then….well I can’t tell you the final one – it might give away the end!
You can certainly see why this film won oscars, the acting is brilliant, the interpretation of the story is amazing, I now know what happened and I even felt how it was to be there!
An amazing film, a definite must watch.
