BREADWINNER, THE (2017)
Irish director Nora Twomey (THE SECRET OF KELLS) adapts Canadian author Deborah Ellis' bestselling novel to create another luminously animated adventure. 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 provide for her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, Parvana discovers a new world of freedom — and danger. As Parvana draws strength from the fantastical stories she invents, she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, THE BREADWINNER is an inspiring tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times. Nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature. (Note adapted from GKIDS.) DIR Nora Twomey; SCR Anita Doron, Deborah Ellis, from Ellis' novel; PROD Angelina Jolie, Anthony Leo, Tomm Moore, Andrew Rosen, Paul Young. Ireland/Canada/Luxembourg, 2017, color, 94 min. RATED PG-13
