Charlie Wilson's War
(2007)

Charlie Wilson (Tom Hanks) is able to get Congress to spend $500 million dollars on funding Afghanistan in the fight against the Russians after the initial proposal of $5 million.

At the end of the movie Charlie Wilson is honored for his work towards ending the cold war and Joanne Herring (Julia Roberts) gets married to someone else.

Wilson continues his fight to get money for the Afghan people to rebuild schools and help the citizens but the US has already moved on and seems to forget about the rebuilding process.
