Argo (HBO Max)

A CIA agent goes undercover as a Hollywood producer to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran.

Why It’s A Good Option for Ben Affleck Fans: Turning the actor/director into an Oscar winner twice-over, Ben Affleck’s Best Picture-winning Argo was a triumphant success, proving definitively that Affleck could hold his own as a filmmaker while also providing a dramatically compelling, broadly accessible movie for critics and audiences alike. In a strong ensemble, Affleck’s lead performance isn’t as strong as his direction, but he holds his own as a determined CIA agent who does everything he can to bring American hostages home safely, even if that means putting together a fake Hollywood production. The result was one big, splashy smash, build on well-realized stakes, well-developed characters, a tight screenplay, and some fine attention to period detail.

It’s also worth noting that Shakespeare in Love is available to stream on Starz.
