TOM's Film Club: The Breadwinner (12A) on Wednesday 23rd January 2019
When her father is wrongfully imprisoned by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001, young Parvana must disguise herself as a boy to support her family. Being exposed to a world of freedoms and dangers normally forbidden to her gender, she must draw on her courage to reunite her family.
Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner employs an innovative mix of 2D animation with painted environments and digital paper-cut-out segments, all woven into a luminous animated tale about growing up in an ever-changing world of conflict and oppression, and the power of stories to sustain hope through dark times.
“More imaginative than Coco, more soulful than Moana, more everything than Despicable Me 3, Nore Twomey’s The Breadwinner cements Ireland’s Cartoon Saloon as an animation powerhouse…”
David Ehrlich, Indiewire
