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.

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.
