Excellent political narrative and great actors!
Charlie Wilson's War portrays people as they are - imperfect, yet capable of achieving great things.
Hanks and Hoffman present their characters with great fervor and great sense of style.
In addition to the great acting, the storyline and the history behind it is also very intriguing and presents us with a grand dilemma well described in the movie as the story of a boy and a zen master.
I warmly recommend this movie to anyone interested in recent political history or generally of good acting. :)
