Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) - dir. Mike Nichols
Aaron Sorkin’s screenplay is terrific. It reads magnificently. Tom Hanks is passable, but not entirely believable as a playboy-congreesman. Julia Roberts is not passible and entirely unbelievable. Philip Seymour Hoffman is terrific.
The film would have been leagues better if you replaced Roberts and Hanks with Glenn Close and Kevin Spacey. But you can’t just do that, so don’t be bothered to view it, just read Sorkin’s wonderful script.
