Final Thoughts

Great Film with an exceptional cast!  It does have the occasional laugh.  This is actually based on a true story about the experience of reporter, Kim Barker during her time in Afghanistan (who also wrote a book, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan).  I really loved Tina Fey in this film.  She did an excellent job at portraying Kim.  This reporter literally risked her life. I hate to admit this but, I love the music in this film.  I’m not talking about the musical score.  They actually played a few familiar top 40 hits. This film is not a good one to watch with the family but I definitely recommend that you check it out.  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is out on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on June 28, 2016.
