Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - Movie Synopsis & Plot
An adaptation of journalist Kim Barker’s wartime memoir, "The Taliban Shuffle." The story recounts Barker’s experiences covering conflicts in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It's said to be a dark comedy dealing with Barker's fish-out-of-water experience and the challenges of being a woman in wartime Afghanistan and Pakistan.
It’s a lonely thing to be, a movie about Americans in Afghanistan. Few people want to see such things, even fewer actually do. The demand is so nonexistent that you wonder who approves such movies to be made, let alone who wants to make them in the first place. And yet here is Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
, an oddly not-odd sort-of drama based on Kim Barker’s experiences working as a journalist in Afghanistan, starring Tina Fey.
