Angelina Jolie readying The Breadwinner


Executive producer Angelina Jolie and Anthony Leo, Tomm Moore, Andrew Rosen and Paul Young, the creators of the Academy Award nominee The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea have got together to come out with the highly-anticipated new animated feature The Breadwinner  based on Deborah Ellis’ best-selling novel.

It’s a heartfelt drama following the incredible journey of Parvana, a young girl in Kabul, Afghanistan under Taliban rule, who gives up everything to provide for her family and reunite with her father.

The Breadwinner tells the story of the 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001.

When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, she draws strength from the stories her father told her and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive.

Thrilling and enchanting in equal parts, The Breadwinner is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.
