Charlie Wilson’s War

21 Dec, 2007

Hanks plays Texas congressman Charlie Wilson in this drama directed by Mike Nichols. Wilson  teams up with a renegade CIA agent and a Houston socialite to assist Afghani rebels in their war with the Soviets. Their efforts contribute to the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

I responded to it because I couldn’t believe that this had ever happened. In reading the book, I thought that this was a serious piece of journalism that describes something that’s almost surrealistic hilarious, as well as historically accurate.
