ARGO is a political drama about the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k').

There are scenes of 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.
