Reviews:

Before there were Russians in Afghanistan (as Billy Joel unforgettably "rapped" in "We Didn't Start the Fire"), there was still much turmoil rooted in the tradition and history of the country. The Kite Runner is a haunting tale of two Afghan children; one, Hassim retrieves kites for his friend Amir in tournaments. When he's brutalized by an older boy one fateful afternoon, their relationship changes forever. Based on the bestselling Khaled Hosseini novel, The Kite Runner is a complex tale of hope and forgiveness.
