Charlie Wilson’s War

Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) R
Tom Hanks stars in this movie based on a true story. In the 1980s, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan was making headlines but the American Congress was not concerned. A few people, including a hard-drinking congressman, a wealthy Texas socialite, and a rebel CIA agent, decide to help the rebels fight the Soviets.

Mike Nichols directs Hanks, Julia Roberts and Philip Seymour Hoffman in this complex political story of wheeling and dealing. Nobody is perfect in this movie and the clandestine help provided by the main characters will leave you wondering what would have happened if they had not succeeded.
