” ‘Argo’ features a plethora of colorful characters brought to life by an outstanding acting ensemble,” said fest chairman Harold Matzner. “Directing what is, unquestionably, his most accomplished film to date, Ben Affleck leads an extraordinary cast, also including Alan Arkin, John Goodman and Bryan Cranston, each of whom delivers powerhouse performances.”
