Review: The Kite Runner

A seemingly overly dramatic movie (based on a book), but somehow, it didn’t turn out to be a tear-jerker. The story, a childhood friendship mixed with some foreign familial customs and some war-torn country themes, still plays out in an earnest heartfelt way though. Acting is quite alright too, along with a good drama-enhancing score and location-rich screenplay. Director Marc Foster seems to build his movies on dialogue-ridden character exploration while having an excellent handle on child actors (see Finding Neverland), and that’s a good sign for his next project (Bond 22).7+.
