‘The Breadwinner’ arrives on Blu-ray & DVD on 24 September 2018

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Deborah Ellis, and directed by Nora Twomey, the critically-acclaimed, Academy Award nominated animated feature, The Breadwinner – the latest feature from Cartoon Saloon (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea) – will be released on Digital on 17 September and on Blu-ray and DVD on 24 September 2018, courtesy of Studiocanal.

The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvana, an 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, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive.

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