ARGO is a political drama about the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis. It was classified '15' for strong language.
The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'The use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent'. There are around 25 uses of strong language and the film is therefore more appropriately classified at '15' where the Guidelines state 'There may be frequent use of strong language'.
ARGO also features some moderate violence, including sight of rioting, a man being beaten in the street, and a lynched corpse hanging from a crane. The image of the man hanging from a crane is also shown during the end credits, side by side with the real life image which inspired it. However, the body is shown from a distance and without detail.
