I wanted to let you know that something very exciting is about to happen! On December 4th we will attend the premiere of what I consider one of the most important movies in Bill's career as a Film Producer (Bill's real name is William Horberg).This is a movie based on The Kite Runner a best seller book written by Khaled Hosseini. (The movie has the same name as the book). This book (the first one in Hosseini's carreer) came out in 2004 and touched the heart of millions of people all over the world. The Director is Marc Forster who in my opinion is one of the finest directors right now and an incredible human being. I have to say the same thing about the Writer Khaled Hosseini and the Actor who leads the story in the movie Khalid Abdalla. It was a magic combination of people connected to the making of this movie and that magic shows in the results.
I was lucky enough to witness the politically complex process of the making of this movie from the beginning and one of the best parts of it was meeting with so many talented people. I think that what I appreciate the most from the book and the movie is all the things that I learned about a country that I was so ignorant about: Afghanistan. I learned about this country and its culture but I also learned that it doesn't matter where you come from, when it comes to human conflicts/emotions we are all the same.
This is a cute picture with Hosseini the Writer (with the black suit on the left), Abdalla the Actor (with the dark t-shirt) Abdalla's parents a young Actress and Darrel Couturier from when they came to see my show while they were promoting the movie here in Los Angeles.
And of course the most important thing is the trailer that you can watch right here. I highly recommend you to see this movie when it comes out very soon. And also let's be alert since it will be considered for Oscars nominations!!! After so much hard work the best part is about to begin! I will keep you updated!
