Charlie Wilson's War 35mm

7.1 out of 10

Comedy Idealistic Texas congressman Charlie Wilson is causing a stir on Capitol Hill, flanked by his assistant Bonnie Bach. When his on-off socialite lover Joanne Herring begs for help with the war effort in Afghanistan, which has just been invaded by the Soviets, Charlie agrees to spearhead the political campaign to increase funding for Mujahideen freedom fighters to repel the invaders. Tapping into a ground swell of support, Charlie aligns himself with maverick CIA agent Gust Avrakotos and together they begin greasing the political cogs and wooing high profile figures like Pakistani president Zia ul-Haq.
