A journalist recounts her wartime coverage in Afghanistan.In Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Tina Fey stars as journalist Kim Baker, who goes overseas to Pakistan and Afghanistan to cover the war during Operation Enduring Freedom. While a war-set drama might not sound like your typical Fey-starring film, the movie is being described as more of a dramedy, striking the same funny but true tone of The Taliban Shuffle, the memoir upon which it is based. Kim Barker (not to be confused with the fictional Kim Baker), wrote the book after spending five years working as the South Asia bureau chief for the Chicago Tribune, and her fish-out-of-water account of adjusting to life as a foreign war correspondent was even described by The New York Times as Tina Fey-esque in its 2011 review. So, with a big screen adaptation on the way, why change the name from The Taliban Shuffle to Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
