This very watchable film is the true(ish) story of one unusual congressman in the early 1980's, who has the luxury of not having to play the politics so many representatives must.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2020: January (29 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 29th I can't recall anymore why I skipped out on Charlie Wilson's War when it came out, unless it was just my tendency to generally avoid anything Julia Roberts does because I'm not a fan. It's on Starz currently though, so I finally gave it a look. And I thought it was pretty good overall. The story is fascinating and the acting is really strong across the board. I kept feeling like Hoffman's character could've been played by John Goodman and there wouldn't be much differ"
