The Breadwinner

The Breadwinner
  • 2017
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Nora Twomey
  • Cast: Saara Chaudry, Soma Chhaya, Noorin Gulamgaus

Parvana (Chaudry) is an 11-year-old girl living in Kabul, who when her father is arrested by the Taliban, disguises herself as a boy so she can move around unimpeded. The animation is elegantly simple and it’s a valiant effort, but the script lacks clarity and it’s hard to see how children would take to such a politically-charged narrative.

Creed II

Creed II
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Caple Jr
  • Cast: Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone, Michael B Jordan

Adonis Creed (Jordan) must defend his world title against Viktor Drago (Munteanu), whose father killed Creed’s own father in Rocky IV. Flashy and entertaining sequel that hits all the right beats but doesn’t quite have the heart of its predecessor..
