Audience Reviews for The Breadwinner

  • Dec 15, 2018
    With beautiful visuals and a similar premise to the devastating Osama, this is a poignant animated film that doesn't shy away from its harrowing subject and yet is able to come up with a surprising amount of lightness in the fantasy stories that its protagonist always returns to.
