The Kite Runner

Rated PG13 • 128 minutes

The best-selling novel by Khaled Hosseini becomes this heartbreaking drama about two boys in 1970's Afghanistan, best friends who are ripped apart by a tragic incident that haunts the rest of their lives. Decades later, one of them gets a chance for redemption, but it will mean a return to his ravaged homeland, now controlled by the brutal Taliban. Director Marc Forster ("Finding Neverland") and writer David Benioff ("Troy") crafted this heartfelt, poignant adaptation.
