At the movies: Charlie Wilson's War

Charlie Wilson's War: 4

A fictionalization of how we got involved in the Russian-Afghan conflict. Starring: Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Written by Aaron Sorkin.

I really enjoyed the depiction of an unknown, under-the-radar Texas congressman with enough power to pull of massive funding for the Afghan rebels. We went from not funding them to funding them at $500 million pretty quickly.

I enjoyed the performances by the 3 major stars and thought the script was well done.
