The Kite Runner

Go and see this it'll make you cry.

You probably know by now that it's about Afghanistan. Since it's a US film you won't be entirely surprised
that the Taliban aren't the small-town country boys who make it good after an hour and a half of setbacks (somebody else from Afghanistan goes to the US and does this instead, so don't worry.)

I haven't read the book but my hunch is that the film is more propagandist. However it is still a fantastic film, and not one to leave to DVD.

Only slight quibble though is 12A rating: so portrayal of child rape and trafficking is fine now at 12 ?
