If you haven't seen the movie Kite Runner, you need to, it is a "must see" movie. From a socio-political standpoint I think it informs us on a number of issues. The same can be said from an ethical standpoint. Biblical scholars will pick up on Middle Easter themes such as honor/shame, kinship, nationalism and other things. The movie is engaging, running about 2 hours, is beautifully shot, well-written, excellently acted, inspiring and overall just a great film. If you have some free time soon, be sure to watch this movie!
