The Breadwinner

From the Oscar nominated creators of THE SECRET OF KELLS and SONG OF THE SEA, this gorgeous third feature from Ireland’s Cartoon Saloon is based on the novel of the same name, about a young Afghani girl who disguises herself as a boy to try to rescue her father from the Taliban, while drawing strength from the fantastical stories she invents for her baby brother. “More imaginative than COCO, more soulful than MOANA, more everything than DESPICABLE ME 3, The Breadwinner cements Cartoon Saloon as an animation powerhouse worth mentioning alongside the likes of Pixar, Laika, and the great Studio Ghibli.” - Indiewire “A work of striking beauty and affecting emotional heft.” - Los Angeles Times “Demonstrates that the way imagination refracts reality can provide not only solace but also real-world strategy.” - N.Y. Times SYNOPSIS: Parvana is an 11-year- old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, Parvana discovers a new world of freedom–and danger. With undaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from the stories she invents, as she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family. Rated PG-13, 94 mins.
