I went to see Charlie Wilson’s War last week (never got around to reviewing it). Tom Hanks stars as Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson, who works with the CIA to launch the biggest covert war operation in United States history. It’s based on a true story. The movie revolves around how the operation unfolds and shows Wilson’s lavish life of partying and women, as well. Julia Roberts gives a great performance as well. The movie portrays life in the 1980’s well, and does a nice job showing realistic war scenes. There is also some political humor and satirical lines that balance the serious tone of the film.
