Cast: Ken Taylor, Joe Clark, Flora MacDonald, Tony Mendez


The main subject of the film is Ken Taylor, Canada’s former ambassador to Iran, who personally sheltered six American diplomats in the operation that became known as "the Canadian Caper." This is a gripping, informative documentary that chronicles the details that not many are aware of. That moniker implies mischief and hijinks, but, as the film's subjects make clear, this was no game. Lives were on the line. This is a true story behind the award-winning feature film, Argo.

  • 4 stars "This is the true story behind the Argo" movie. It's Canadian made, always fascinating, sometimes edge-of-the-chair thrilling. We saw it at our local (Richmond Hill, Ontario) film club."
