From the creators of the Academy Award nominated animated classics The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea comes another stunning new feature nominated as this year’s Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards. Based on Deborah Ellis’ best-selling novel, The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up in Afghanistan in 2001 under Taliban  rule. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, risking her life to discover if he is still alive. Both thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.

Reviews

Strikingly beautiful…captivating…The Breadwinner reminds us yet again that the best of animation takes us anywhere at any time and makes us believe.
