Description
Based on Khaled Hosseini's bestselling novel, directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland and Monster's Ball), and nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and one Oscar, The Kite Runner (2007) tells the story of Amir and Hassan who, as young boys in pre-Soviet-invasion Afghanistan, are inseparable friends until a single fateful act tears them apart. Years later, Amir embarks on a dangerous quest to right the wrongs of the past—and redeem himself in unexpected ways—by displaying the ultimate in courage and devotion to his friend.

"The Kite Runner … allows us to see a country and a culture from the inside: it puts a human face on a tragedy most of us know only from headlines and glimpses on the nightly news. It helps that the Afghan scenes are played in Dari, not English. Forster's solid, unpretentious movie hits its marks squarely, and isn't afraid to wear its heart on its sleeve. Only a mighty tough viewer could fail to be moved."—Newsweek
