The Kite Runner (2007) The Kite Runner (2007) The Kite Runner (2007)

2008/09 Season


USA 2007 (12A)
128 minutes

Directed by Marc Forster

Hollywood Film Theatre - 18 May 2009 - 7.30pm

Riding on the back of a widely read book, Forster's film is a well-judged adapation which, despite its American origin, convincingly immerses one in Afghan culture. The story is a classic one of childhood betrayal and the search for redemption. The title alludes to the popular Afghan practice of kite-flying contests.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: What came over to me was the courage that was portrayed throughout; Excellent says it all. The best film in a long while. Sensitive, brutal and well told; A disappointing adaptation; Revolting, violent, belongs in another culture. Touching moments, though.
