the breadwinner - ReYep
So, there's this movie that throws you back to 2001, smack in the heart of Kabul under the Taliban's rule. Picture this: women can't hit the streets without a male sidekick. Now, enter Parvana, an 11-year-old who, after her dad gets nabbed for no good reason, has to go undercover as a dude to keep her family afloat. You're basically seeing the world crumble through Parvana's eyes – the wreckage, the struggles, the dreams she's building against all the odds, and the fight for survival.

And then, as if that's not enough, the film takes you on this mythological rollercoaster, weaving in elements from lands that've hosted civilizations for centuries. As you're glued to the screen, trying not to get all choked up or teary-eyed, it hits you. This film, throwing its hat into the Oscar ring for Best Animated Feature, might or might not snag the trophy. But one thing's for sure, it's carved out a cozy spot in the hearts of everyone who's caught a glimpse of it.
