Rock The Kasbah shows Bill Murray at his best again, here as a down-on-his-luck music manager who discovers a teenage girl with an extraordinary voice while on a music tour in Afghanistan and takes her to Kabul to compete on the popular television show, Afghan Star.
The film also stars Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Taylor Kinney, Danny McBride, Leem Lubany and Scott Caan, and is directed by Barry Levinson (Rainman).
Rock The Kasbah hasn’t yet got a UK release date, just a US one on October 23rd at present, but I hope it does soon as it looks hilarious. Bill Murray proves he doesn’t need to make Ghostbusters 3 when he can clearly grow old disgracefully with great films like this.
