Based on the memoir by Kim Barker, and co-starring Martin Freeman, Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, and Christopher Abbott, the story follows an American reporter who rolls the dice and takes an assignment abroad, hoping to change up her life. And it looks like her eyes are opened to a new culture, and she grows as a person and finds herself along the way, as these things usually go.

Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, (“Focus,” “Crazy Stupid Love“), “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” opens on March 4th.
