Dr Desert Flower and I saw Argo this evening - in a theater full of 40, 50, and 60 somethings - and it was pretty good. Yes, it was a little over-dramatic and exaggerated beyond what really happened, but it was a good film. There were no cars chasing them down the run way, and Iran didn't figure it out the DAY OF the escape, in reality, they figured it out the Next Day. The Americans got out, the Canadian Ambassador & his wife got out, and everyone was safe and fine... but Ben Affleck is a good story teller. I think Ben Affleck is a better story teller than Clint (the Chair) Eastwood, and Clint's already won Oscars for that.
After the movie, we went out and ate Persian food in Laguna Niguel - very appropriate. =) .. and delicious.
