Film Version of 'Kite Runner' Faithful to Book

Children in Afghanistan are at the center of The Kite Runner, the bestselling book by Khalid Hosseni that has been made into a film. The film, like the novel, breaks into two parts. Initially it's the tale of childhood friendship and betrayal in peaceful, pre-war Afghanistan. Then, after an unexpected phone call, it becomes the story of how that relationship plays out when its characters become adults.
