Kite Runner

We watched The Kite Runner last night. What a powerful movie! It has a deep subject that is just as relevant to contemporary America as it is to contemporary Afghanis. Incredibly well-written, well-directed, and well-acted. Much has been written about the rape scene and how it has offended Muslims throughout the Middle East. In truth, the rape scene is important, but it is not the focus of the movie. It's about violence, bullying, and standing up to thugs. On a scale of one to four, The Kite Runner gets five stars.
