WILD STRAWBERRIES: ARGO

Director: BEN AFFLECK

120 minutes, U.S.A., 2012, Drama/History/Thriller


Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for the over 55s. 

This is the multi-award-winning directorial feature from Ben Affleck who brings an assured confidence to the role of Mendez, CIA expert on ‘exfil’ – getting Americans out of enemy territory.

After the 1979 overthrow of the Shah of Iran, an angry mob storms the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and takes the staff hostage. When six manage to escape to the Canadian embassy, the CIA steps in and Mendez comes up with a bizarre plan. Posing as a filmmaker, he and two actual Hollywood hacks – Alan Arkin and John Goodman in rattling form – will travel to Iran to scout locations for a sci-fi adventure in the desert, and then bring the six ‘actors’ home.

Tension mounts as the countdown to departure begins in this very convincing thriller. 

€3.85 per person including regular tea or coffee before the screening. Please note: Wild Strawberries is our film club for over 55s. If you are lucky enough to look younger, don’t take offence if we ask your age.
