DRAMA The Kite Runner (12A) screens at the Hollywood Cinema in Lowestoft this week.

The film is an epic tale of friendship and betrayal running from the final days of Afghanistan's monarchy through to the Taliban regime.

It begins by following an unlikely friendship that develops between Amir, the son of a wealthy Afghan businessman, and Hassan, a servant to Amir and his father.

However an unspeakable event that takes place during a kite-flying tournament will change the nature of their relationship forever.

As an adult, Amir, now a novelist living in San Francisco, is still haunted by the events and seeks redemption by returning to his war-torn native land to make peace with himself.

Also screening this week at the Lowestoft Hollywood Cinema is Sweeny Todd (18), Dan in Real Life (PG), Control (15), Alien v Predator Requiem (15), I Am Legend (15), St Trinians (12A), Alvin and the Chipmunks (U), Enchanted (PG), Bee Movie (U) and The Golden Compass (PG).
