The website of Charlie Wilson’s War – an upcoming political movie starring Tom Hanks – is about how you expect politics to be – dry and boring! But there are a couple of interesting features on the website, including a link that says “Act Now”, when you click on the link a screen pops up prompting you to enter your zip code to find your local Congressman, meant to inspire you to get involved and make a change. The feature really does work, giving you the name of your Congressman, what political party he’s with, his address in DC, phone, fax, and email address…so if you’re wanting to get in touch with your Congressman – or find out who it is, this is an excellent resource!
Charlie Wilson’s War is supposedly based on a true story, so on the official movie site, you will find a link to learn about the “Real Charlie”. The rest of the website is pretty basic, and includes a movie synopses, biographies on the crew and cast (which includes Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams), an image gallery of movie stills, and downloads (just the bare minimum…buddy icons and desktop wallpapers).
