I finally got to see this fantastic movie. When you hear people say truth is stranger than fiction, this story is a prime example of that adage. Even when you factor in “dramatic license,” this is an incredible tale that is truthfully told. The direction, acting, and screenplay were all well done. Even though we lived through this event, no one, of course, was aware of this episode until the information was declassified by President Clinton.
When we try to understand the situation in the Middle East today and the attitudes of its people, it is important that we reflect back in time to what happened more than thirty years ago. This film brings us back and helps the viewer remember that time in our history.
