The Kite Runner movie

Kite_RunnerI saw the movie version of Khaled Hosseini's book and was impressed and depressed as the story traces Hosseini's life as a child of privilege in Afghanistan prior to the Soviet invasion, through this life in America, and back again to a now Taliban ruled Afghanistan wherein he attempts to come to terms with his and his family's dishonor. I don't want to write more as it's better to see or read it for yourself, but be prepared for lots of rape and violence.
