This review is from: Charlie Wilson's War [DVD] (DVD)
Before I purchased this DVD, I knew nothing of the Afghan war or of the role of America in it. This DVD was not only an enjoyable and well acted drama; it was a great lesson in world history. It was good to see Julia Roberts come back from a long hiatus with such a convincing performance in the role of the rich Texan Blondie with a quirky sense of humour and authority. Tom Hanks as usual was awesome in the lead role as Charlie Wilson, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman was superb as the eccentric reporter.
The DVD extra footage which shows the real Charlie Wilson's documentary titled `Who is Charlie Wilson' was fantastic, a great and worthy addition to an already superb DVD. The other extra feature of the DVD is the making of Charlie Wilson's war - a behind the scenes look at how it was all put together, fascinating stuff. I recommend this to all as a great movie and a well dramatised historical world event. You will love it.
