USA, 2016, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, Comedy/Drama, 112 mins (15).

Based on Kim Barker’s memoir, “The Taliban Shuffle,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” contains the fondly, proudly recalled details of battle-tested experience.  WTF suggests a serious extension of Ms. Fey’s best-known comedic persona, on more treacherous terrain and with an Afghan culture clash.  She embeds with the military to chase stories, half-reluctantly hooks up with a foul-mouthed British journalist (Martin Freeman) and generally gets her groove back.

Reviews:
"An assignment to Afghanistan proves the making of Fey’s journalist character in this irreverent romp, and suggests the comedian could pursue weightier roles"  - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian (✱✱✱✱)

"Whiskey Tango Foxtrot puts women at the heart of war" - Alice Vincent, The Telegraph (✱✱✱✱)


Some comments from last season's members:

"My first season, and what an awesome season that was! I've seen so many films that wouldn't normally appear on my radar and I consider myself more fulfilled because of it! It's been an educating, entertaining and enthralling 9 months!" C.M.

“I joined last year to see non-UK films that are infrequently shown elsewhere. The films I saw were breathtakingly beautiful; the range of subject matter, plot and photography were amazing.” R.J.

“15 diverse films from around the world – on the big screen, on our doorstep, and all for under £3.50 a film! For a film-lover this has to be the best deal around.” – J. F.

"An invigorating injection of culture in your local theatre! Prepare to be challenged, surprised, moved and entertained by a unique selection of films, all informatively introduced." C.L.
