Plot Outline:A drama based on a Texas congressman Charlie Wilson's covert dealings in Afghanistan, where his efforts to assist rebels in their war .
The movie seems like it will smoothly skate that line between comedy and drama. It appears to be a character-driven story that also focuses on covert international politics in the 1980s. Hanks plays Texas congressman whose secret dealings in Afghanistan — assisting rebels in their war with the Soviets — have some "unforeseen and long-reaching effects," like, apparently forming "the backbone of Al-Qaeda and the Taliban."
The lead actor is Tom Hanks and America's sweetheart Mrs. Roberts plays the female lead .Just by watching the two-and-a-half minute preview, some folks are already whispering "Oscar potential" for this film, which opens December 25.
