The Kite Runner

Last night I went with Tina, Eva, Creighton and Tina (Creighton's wife) to a premiere viewing of The Kite Runner for a charity, The Afghanistan World Foundation. Overall, the film was pretty good. I actually bough the book on Audible a few months ago, but have not listened to it yet, so the plot of the movie was new to me. Some elements seemed far fetched, but it is a work of fiction.

There is a part of the film where the main character sneaks back into Afghanistan during the Taliban rule, and he has to wear a fake beard. Unfortunately, it looks all of the other actors portraying the men of Afghanistan are also wearing fake bears. All I could keep thinking of was Team America.
