The Kite Runner

Kite Runner is based on the bestselling novel by Khaled Hosseini's that revolves around two boys, Amir and Hassan who are best friends growing up in Afghanistan in the 1970s and whose lives are forever altered after a life changing incident.

The incident begins when they both enter a kite flying contest and as the day progresses, Hassan is violently raped while Amir idly watches and through fear is unable to seek aid. Hassan sees this as an act of cowardness as does Amir who is severely remorseful over the incident and both their innocence is forever lost.

Fast forward to San Francisco where Amir (Khalid Abdalla) is now a successful author in the United States, however he feels the need to return to his homeland in Afghanistan, only to discover that Hassan's fate nor his family's has improved as he attempts to do the unthinkable and challenge the violent and crazed rule of the Taliban.

Director Marc Forster (Monster's Ball) does a brilliant job at transforming the story to film with some truly inspirational performances from all involved, making this one of the most moving films of the year. Great picture quality and some very interesting special features round this DVD off.

Special Features:
  • Words from The Kite Runner
