The Kite Runner

If you are flying Cathay Pacific in long haul flights this month, one good in flight movie is The Kite Runner.

It tells about the life of an Afghan boy before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan their exodus to Pakistan, migration to the U.S. and his return to Taliban Afghanistan to claim his nephew.. A story of family drama, how brutal the invading Russians and the Taliban rulers that came after the Russian defeat. There's a rape scene of a boy [Hassan] which became controversial.

One of my instant favorites.
