FAMILY FILM: The Breadwinner (12)
Dir: Nora Twomey | Ireland / Canada / Luxembourg | 2017 | 93 mins
Voice cast | Saara Chaudry, Soma Bhatia, Ali Badshah, Noorin Gulamgaus
From the creators of The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, and executive produced by Angelina Jolie, comes the Oscar-nominated The Breadwinner, based on Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel. Parvana (voiced by Saara Chaudry) is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001, whose family is cast into dire straits when her father is wrongfully imprisoned. In Taliban-controlled Kabul, women and girls are not permitted to leave the house unescorted or to earn money. So, the resourceful Parvana becomes the breadwinner, disguising herself as a boy to support her family and finding herself in a world of new freedoms normally forbidden to her gender – as well as new dangers. Drawing courage from her imagination, she embarks on a mission to reunite her family.
Thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner deploys an innovative mix of 2D animation with painted environments, as well as digital paper cut–out segments. It’s all woven into a luminous animated tale about growing up in an ever-changing world of conflict and oppression, the strength of girls, and the power of stories to sustain hope through dark times.
