What's on at Crouch End Picturehouse - HOH Subtitled
The third feature length film to come out of Kilkenny-based animation studio Cartoon Saloon, after The Secret of Kells (2009) and Song of the Sea (2015), Nora Twomey’s The Breadwinner revolves around the daily struggles facing 11-year-old Parvana in Taliban-controlled Kabul, Afghanistan. Executive produced by Angelina Jolie and based on Deborah Ellis’ best-selling novel of the same name published in 2000, The Breadwinner is an inspiring and ultimately uplifting tale of familial love and loyalty in the face of oppression
After her father is unjustly arrested by the Taliban, Parvana’s family are left without a man of the house, and the young girl is forced to dress and pass herself off as a boy. This allows Parvana to move around the city and work to provide the money the family need to survive. In a culture where females are forbidden from travelling anywhere alone, this places Parvana in constant danger, but desperate times call for desperate solutions.
Journey to a galaxy far, far away to discover the backstory of one of the most loveable rogues in cinema history: Han Solo. Set over a decade before the original trilogy, the second Star Wars spin-off charts the early years of the iconic smuggler and reveals the making of a scoundrel. In a series of daring escapades deep within a criminal underworld, a young Solo (Ehrenreich) meets his future first mate Chewbacca (Suotamo), encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Glover), and embarks on the first of many adventures in the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”, the Millennium Falcon.
