September 13 arrived, and that meant it was time for another movie! Charlie Wilson’s War was made in 2007 and based on a true story. Tom Hanks stars as Congressman Charlie Wilson, a man from Texas who loves to party. Congressman Wilson is on two foreign policy and covert-ops committees, and when a big supporter of his, Joanne Herring (Julia Roberts) reveals to him the horrors that the Afganis face in 1980s Soviet Union-occupied Afganistan, Charlie decides to put his efforts into supplying the mujahideen with weapons to kick those Commies out! However, helping this group out militarily does have some consequences. This movie was made in the English language and was filmed in both California and Morocco.
