Whiskey Tango Foxtrot movie quotes follow one female journalist's adventures reporting from Afghanistan during the war on terrorism. The comedy movie was adapted into a screenplay by Robert Carlock from the book The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan by Kim Barker. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa directed Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which opened in theaters on March 4, 2016.
In Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Kim Baker (Tina Fey) is an unmarried, childless television journalist who takes an assignment as a war correspondent in Afghanistan, both for the change of scenery and to get away from a sub-optimal boyfriend. She arrives in Afghanistan and quickly makes friends, including with fellow female journalist Tanya Vanderpoel (Margot Robbie), freelance photographer Iain MacKelpie (Martin Freeman) and fixer Fahim Ahmadzai (Christopher Abbott).
While Kim is in the company of US Marines, led by General Hollanek (Billy Bob Thornton), her work in the area is quite dangerous. From the armed combatants trying to blow them up to the sexual advances from Afghan government official Ali Massoud Sadiq (Alfred Molina), Kim has her work cut out for her. So when the chance to break a big, yet incredibly dangerous, story presents itself, she has to decide how far she is willing to go for her career.Whiskey Tango Foxtrot joins theaters already showing other films including Zootopia, London Has Fallen, Triple 9, Gods of Egypt, and Deadpool.
