Kite Runner

Excellent. The MOST important thing for me was a reminder of the situation in Afghanistan. With all the Iraqi problems we sometimes forget that we first were bombing in Afghanistan and even before that the Taliban had a hold on the control. There are a few books out now (fiction) that have inside looks into the country. I always appreciate the power of the medium of film over just the written word to show what is happening.

The acting was also – what’s the world – natural. It was as if the main guy in the movie (who was a boy originally) was just being himself, like he was not an actor. I enjoyed it.
