The Breadwinner

Dir. Nora Twomey. Canada/Ireland/Luxembourg, 2017. 1h 33m. Starring Saara Chaudry, Laara Sadiq, Shaista Latif, Ali Badshah, Noorin Gulamgaus, Kawa Ada.

A gorgeously animated but unflinching tale about an 11-year-old girl’s courage under Taliban rule. One of this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Animated Feature from the co-director of The Secret of Kells.

'Further proof that we are living through a golden age of animation' ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

‘Against the odds, the tone here is optimistic about human nature. The film even manages to be uplifting, a small miracle given the darkness of its themes.’ ★★★★ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
