Charlie Wilson's War

In the 1980s U.S.Rep. Charlie Wilson (Tom Hanks), Texas socialite Joanne Herring (Julia Roberts) and CIA agent Gust Avrakotos (Philip Seymour Hoffman) form an unlikely alliance to boost funding for Afghan freedom fighters in their war against invading Soviets. The trio's successful efforts to finance these covert operations contributes to the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

A Good Historical Lesson

It shows how things that used to be done couldnt be accomplished anymore for good or for bad. Also, US never finishes what it starts and the world knows it and this shows it. Good show. Give Hanks another Oscar. And Give one to Charlie Wilson too.

Charlie Wilson's War

This movie was terrific..........solid action,drama and comedy all rolled into one...I could have watched it another hour....it was that good.
TOM HANKS was made for this role--and Julia Roberts was wonderful as the Texas socialite, even as a blond...Phillip Seymour Hoffman was GREAT---so great, that I did not recognize him til the credits rolled at the end....Some of the best one liners I have heard, so listen carefully.

The story itself is amazing --I had never heard of Charlie Wilson and the power this man yielded in Congress was unreal....considereing this is a true story,it makes you wonder how much more the government is doing that we know nothing about...

GO SEE THIS MOVIE---------You will love it....
