And how would that happen? :)
25 November 2008 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen the movie yet, only planning to. But - how on earth would she KNOW being THERE that she is famous in US because of that photo??? You expect her in this situation read National Geographic or American newspapers?? :) I seriously doubt she would ever learn about all this if such a trip didn't happen. I think her daughters surely have a chance to become educated, but I think we should forget this great idea of giving some money to them from what was "made on her" :)) It never works that way, unfortunately!! I'd love to see that happen though as well!!

I'm always very sad to see such stories since I come from Russia, even though I know I'm personally not responsible for that mess and bloodshed, but it's just in my mind every time. Just like reading Husseini's "Kite Runner", you live through all this once again...
