Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
I came to 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' without any foreknowledge of what it is about and with the uninformed assumption, because it stars Tina Fey, that I would be seeing a broad comedy.
In fact the film is a drama, and a good one at that, about the wartime experiences in Afghanistan of a television journalist, her media colleagues and the military with whom they associated in the field and at leisure.
The film has humour, in the style of 'MASH', I suppose, but it is mostly a depiction of wartime relationships in closed and dangerous environments.
