Charlie Wilson's War

Charlie Wilson's War
(Starring Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, and Philip Seymour Hoffman)

Charlie Wilson's War is based on the story of how America became involved in the war between Afghanistan and Russia. Three important Americans played a significant role in this covert operation: Charles Wilson, a Congressman from Texas; Joanne Herring, a rich socialite; and CIA agent, Gust. The bonus features are just as fascinating as the movie, especially "Who is Charlie Wilson?". This feature gives a little insight as to the real Charlie Wilson and shows film clips of his trips to Afghanistan, including personal interviews.
