From the studio that made ‘The Secret of Kells,’ this powerful, Afghanistan-set animated film serves as an appeal for women’s rights and a celebration of the creative spirit.

If “The Breadwinner” were a live-action film, it would be virtually unbearable to watch, but as animation, it’s not only possible, but somehow inspiring to immerse oneself in this pared-down adaptation of Deborah Ellis’ well-regarded young-adult novel, about an 11-year-old girl who must step up and care for her family after the Taliban raids her home and arrests her father (hence the title). Though the heroine is a child, and the book was written for young readers, “The Breadwinner” is by no means a simple-minded kidpic; rather, it directly confronts the misogyny and chauvinism of contemporary Afghanistan, while powerfully suggesting that storytelling is both a means of coping and a solution for change.

Such minor quibbles aside, “The Breadwinner” proves nothing short of exceptional, celebrating as it does a young woman who faces adversity head-on — and who relies on her own creativity, both as a storyteller and in practical situations, to adapt to whatever obstacles she faces. Amid a palette toned down significantly from the brilliant emerald and sapphire tones of “The Secret of Kells” and “Song of the Sea,” Parvana’s green eyes seem all the more striking. Equally important to the personality of the overall film is Jeff and Mychael Danna’s stunning score, which takes its cues from the region, while capturing that essential sense of optimism that make Parvana such a remarkable heroine.
