Review: The Kite Runner

I just finished watching The Kite Runner, a movie based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini and it was amazing, a MUST see.

Based on Khaled Hosseini’s acclaimed novel, “The Kite Runner” is an 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.

During the movie, my emotions were all over the place, the story and the meaning behind it was portrayed beautifully and is now added to my favourite movie’s list.

I really recommend that you watch it when you can!

Watch the trailer HERE
