OSCAR NOMINEE - BEST MUSIC!
NOMINATED FOR 2 GOLDEN GLOBES
Based on one of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, THE KITE RUNNER is a profoundly emotional tale of friendship, family, devastating mistakes and redeeming love. In a divided country on the verge of war, two childhood best friends, Amir and Hassan, are about to be torn apart forever. It’s a glorious afternoon in Kabul and the skies are bursting with the exhilarating joy of an innocent kite-fighting tournament. But in the aftermath of the day’s victory, one boy’s fearful act of betrayal will set in motion a catastrophe … and an epic quest for redemption. Now, after 20 years of living in America, Amir returns to a perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban’s iron-fisted rule to face the dark secrets that still haunt him and take one last daring chance to set things right.
Director Marc Forster (STRANGER THAN FICTION, MONSTER’S BALL and the upcoming BOND 22) brings to life Khaled Hosseini’s bestseller on the screen with a globally diverse cast and crew, mixing a remarkable group of non-actors from Afghanistan and Central Asia with an accomplished international cast, and shooting on location in the Western Chinese desert bordering Afghanistan. The result is a journey into a new world -- through a universal human story that speaks to anyone who has ever yearned for a second chance to make a change and find forgiveness.
