TOM Hanks and Julia Roberts star in a true story about a US Congressman's covert efforts to arm freedom fighters in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Charlie Wilson (Hanks) was a charismatic, liberal politician from Texas who teamed up with his lover (Roberts) and a rogue CIA agent (Phillip Seymour Hoffman).

They manipulated Congress, the CIA and a host of foreign governments in order to assist the Afghan rebels in their fight against the Soviets in the 1980s.

Their success was remarkable - although led to unforeseen and long-reaching effects.
