Academy Award® winners Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in this compelling and witty film from Oscar®-winning director Mike Nichols and Primetime Emmy®-winning writer Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing). Based on the outrageous true story, Charlie Wilson's War shows how one congressman who loved a good time, one Houston socialite who loved a good cause and one renegade CIA agent who loved a good fight conspired to bring about the largest covert operation in history.
Political movies about backroom negotiations need not be dry or heavy-handed, as iCharlie Wilson's War /i delightfully proves. Based on the true story of playboy congressman Wilson's efforts to fund Afghanistan's defense against the Soviet invasion of the 1980s, the film is borne along on breezy attitude and a peppery script by iWest Wing/i scribe Aaron Sorkin. Wilson, played by Tom Hanks (who also produced), is the perfect hero for this kind of tale, because there's nothing perfect or heroic about him: He's a highball-swilling, fanny-pinching gadabout who becomes radicalized on the issue of helping the Afghans against their mighty aggressor. He has help in the form of a right-wing Texas anti-Communist (Julia Roberts) with a genius for raising money, and a sardonic CIA operative (Philip Seymour Hoffman, stealing the show) who lacks all the social skills Wilson has in abundance. Sorkin's syncopated speech is just the ticket for director Mike Nichols, who understands exactly how to keep this kind of political comedy popping (the complicated story comes in at a hair over 90 minutes, amazingly). Some scoundrels are on the right side of the angels, and the movie's Charlie Wilson is one of them. --iRobert Horton/i brbr br/p span class="h1"strongBeyond iCharlie Wilson's War/i on DVD/strong/span table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4" tr align="center" valign="top" class="tiny" td width="33%" img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51855ZR0PQL._SL160_AA115_.jpg" border="0"brMore Tom Hanks/td td width="33%" img src= "http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41H%2BLeyjhFL._SL160_AA115_.jpg" border="0"brFilms by Mike Nichols/td td width="33%" img src= "http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51dBlYSvcgL._SL160_AA115_.jpg" border="0"brMore Julia Roberts/td/tr /table brbrbr span class="h1"strongStills from ICharlie Wilson's War/I (Click for larger image)/strong/span table border="0" cellpadding="4" width="100%" cellspacing="4"p p tr align="center" valign="top" tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Adams_s.jpg" br /tdp tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Beatty_s.jpg" br /td tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Hoffman2_s.jpg" br/tdp tr align="center" valign="top" tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Celebrate_s.jpg"br/td p tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_HotTub_s.jpg"br/td tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Hoffman_s.jpg"br/td br/tdp tr align="center" valign="top" tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Roberts_s.jpg"br/td p tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Hanks_Roberts_Adams_s.jpg"br/td tdimg border="0" align=left src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/dvd/Universal/CharlieWilson/Roberts_pool_s.jpg"br/td /tr /table /p
