Tina Fey Goes to war only equipped with a camera in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”

Tina Fey stars as Kim Baker, a TV news producer in New York that gets a chance to go in front of the camera by taking an assignment covering the war in Afghanistan. “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” also stars Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina and Billy Bob Thornton in this film based upon the autobiography,  “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan” by Kim Barker.
