Rock the Kasbah (15)

Rock the Kasbah (15)

Comedy, Music, War

A down-on-his-luck music manager 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 critical consensus

Barry Levinson helms a dismal dramedy starring Bill Murray and Bruce Willis.

On paper, this could have been excellent; as it stands, it’s painful and futile for all involved. Much like the Afghan conflict itself.

Bill Murray is worth watching but shouldn't be centre of the narrative.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 17/03/2016

Even Bill Murray and Barry Levinson cannot rescue this confused rags to rock riches story, inspired by a real-life talent show contestant.
