About the Film
Based on one of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, The Kite Runner is a profoundly moving tale of family, friendship, moral dilemmas and ultimately love. Gloriously photographed in the western China desert that borders Afghanistan, the story revolves around two childhood friends raised in Kabul. One boy’s fearful act of betrayal will mark their lives forever and set in motion an epic quest for redemption. After 20 years of living in America, Amir returns to a perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban’s iron-fisted rule to face the secrets that still haunt him and take one last daring chance to set things right.
A film of exhilarating, redemptive humanity. – The Washington Post
