Adams plays Bonnie Bach, administrative assistant to 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.
It was so much fun. Just to be on that set and learn from these people and get to watch Philip Seymour Hoffman and Tom Hanks do these amazing scenes together, directed by Mike Nichols, it was for me like going to school.
