Our first four films have been very well received - Rosalie Blum, Return Home, The Farewell and Miss Saigon. See the calendar for the Starbox scores for each film. This month, May, we are showing an animated feature from France called 'The Swallows of Kabul'. A highly regarded film from the festival circuit of the last few years. It tells the story of life and love under Taliban rule. The choice to animate overcame issues involved in making a live action film on location. It is based on a book by Yasmina Khadra
