Description

Includes the screenplay by David Benioff and a foreword by Khaled Hosseini.

With more than 120 photos in full color and the complete screenplay, the story behind the making of the movie based on the beloved bestselling novel directed by Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland, and Stranger Than Fiction).


Based on one of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, The Kite Runner is a profound emotional tale of friendship, family, devastating mistakes, and redeeming love.  In a divided country on the verge of war, two childhood friends, Amir and Hassan, are about to be torn apart forever.  One boy's fearful act of betrayal will mark their lives forever and set in motion 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 secrets that still haunt him and take one last daring chance to set things right.  This universal human story speaks to anyone who has ever yearned for a second chance to make a change and find forgiveness.

This beautifully designed pictorial book includes the complete screenplay, highlighted by exquisite color photographs, behind-the-scenes stories about the production, the locations (the western Chinese desert that borders Afghanistan), the casting of the globally diverse cast and crew, and an introduction by novelist Khaled Hosseini.

"How long has it been since you saw a movie that succeeds as pure story?  That doesn't depend on stars, effects or genres, but simply fascinates you with how it will turn out?  Marc Forster's The Kite Runner, based on a much-loved novel, is a movie like that.  It superimposes human faces and a historical context on the tragic images of war from Afghanistan...This is a magnificent film [that] equals Monster's Ball in its emotional impact.  Like House of Sand and Fog and Man Push Cart, it helps us to understand that the newcomers among us come from somewhere and are somebody."
   óRoger Ebert, 4-star review, Chicago Sun-Times
