Charlie Wilson's War (2007)
Hanks plays the real-life congressman who, in the '80s, conspired with a CIA agent (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and a right-wing Houston socialite (Julia Roberts) to support the Mujahideen during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. EW's Owen Gleiberman says, ''Hanks, who has been repressing the sleaze he showed in early roles for too long, bites into Charlie's buttery corruption, and [Mike] Nichols and [Aaron] Sorkin turn the wonkish jargon of politics into light comedy by staying absolutely true to it.''
