Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
Fey plays Kim Baker, a reported who spends time in Afghanistan either in Kabul holed up with other reporters in a sort of alcohol fueled college frat kind of experience interspersed with the adrenaline rush that comes with being in combat when they are embedded with U.S. troops. Billy Bob Thornton is commendable as the commander of U.S. forces that Baker works with and Martin Freeman as the charming scamp of a reporter who loves and ultimately leaves Baker. Very funny in a dark gallows sense.
