DreamWorks Shame in "The Kite Runner"

Child actors in Afghanistan were paid only $10,000 to appear in a movie "The Kite Runner." Now they are are being ostracized by their towns and family members have lost their jobs.

For God's sake, give the kids and their families more money. DreamWorks should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, but they probably aren't. DreamWorks took advantage of ignorant peasants and it is disgusting.

The Kite Runner is my favourite book of all time and I own an autographed first edition. I didn't even know Hollywood was doing a movie. The situation with the boys needs to be made right.

Econo-Girl is really annoyed at DreamWorks for this escapade.
