Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he film is impressive throughout with a nice contrast between Parvana’s story, utilizing an approach designed to suggest traditional hand-drawn animation, and the Elephant King tale, which is presented in a more overtly stylized manner..." - 11/17/2017 RogerEbert.com


"The director, Nora Twomey, has a nuanced way with characterization and action..." - 11/16/2017 New York Times


"In its power and its beauty, THE BREADWINNER reminds us that animation can be every bit as much of a medium for adults as it is for children." - 11/17/2017 Los Angeles Times


"[A]n empowering story about children that is accessible to children without shying from the terrors of the war that shapes it." - 12/01/2017 Chicago Sun-Times
