Ben Affleck directs and co-stars in this fact-based hostage crisis drama. It's set in 1979; Islamic terrorists kidnap American hostages; a CIA agent (Affleck) poses as a Canadian film producer scouting locations for the fake movie of this movie's title and undertakes a daring rescue. Stranger than fiction indeed. John Goodman and Alan Arkin costar.
