From Executive Producer Angelina Jolie and the team behind such animated treasures as THE SECRET OF KELLS and SONG OF THE SEA comes one of this year’s Oscar picks (nominee, Best Animated Feature) THE BREADWINNER, based on Deborah Ellis’ best-selling novel about a headstrong young Afghani girl.
Parvana is an 11-year-old girl who lives under Taliban rule in Afghanistan in 2001. After the wrongful arrest of her father, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy to support her family. Working alongside a friend, she soon discovers a new world of freedom and danger. Drawing strength from the fantastical stories she invents, Parvana embarks on an epic quest to find her father and reunite her family.
“THE BREADWINNER is worth celebrating, in part because it is a work that in some ways qualifies as reportage.” (The New York Times)
“THE BREADWINNER‘s stunning visuals are matched by a story that dares to confront sobering real-life issues with uncommon — and richly rewarding — honesty.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
