The poignant and intimate epic based on Khaled Hosseini's best-selling novel, The Kite Runner, available to buy on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment from 2nd June 2008, is a profoundly moving tale of friendship, family, devastating mistakes, betrayal and redemption.

Directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland, Monster's Ball), The Kite Runner received widespread critical acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score, as well as Golden Globe nominations for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Score and three BAFTA nominations for Best Film Not in the English Language, Best music and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Spanning several decades and set against the backdrop of, first the Soviet invasion and then the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, two childhood friends, Amir and Hassan, form an unlikely friendship in Kabul. Amir's failure to defend Hassan against a brutal attack leads to crushing guilt and the boys' ultimate separation. Forced to flee Kabul ahead of Soviet troops, Amir and his father escape to the United States to pursue a new life, but years later Amir is still haunted by the guilt of betraying his childhood friend, and returns to a perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban's iron-fisted rule to face the secrets that still disturb him and take one last daring chance to set things right. In doing so, Amir opens his heart as well as his family's sealed secrets, with life-changing consequences.

Forster brings to life Khaled Hosseini's bestseller with a globally diverse cast and crew, mixing a remarkable group of non-actors from Afghanistan and Central Asia with an accomplished international cast. A life-affirming story of courage and forgiveness, The Kite Runner is a film that powerfully combines gripping suspense with universal themes to transcend time and place and touch the hearts of viewers everywhere.
