Argo (2012) R

Yes, sir. There are only bad options. It’s about finding the best one.

You don’t have a better bad idea than this?

This is the best bad idea we have, sir, by far.

I loved Argo so much that I’ve seen it twice in the past month. The film tells the story of the rescue of six Americans in Tehran who escaped the embassy at the start of the 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis. Despite knowing the end of the tale, you’ll be on the edge of your seat throughout this engaging thriller. Quick-witted, snarky dialogue balances tense situations.

And if you’re wondering how true to real life the Hollywood version is, check out this NPR review from a former White House aide.
