Movie Showing: The Breadwinner

November 2, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Looking for something to do on early release day?  Come see a movie! Hailed as the “best animated feature of 2017” and “nothing short of exceptional,” The Breadwinner is a tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times.  Based on the children’s book by Deborah Ellis, this is the story of 11-year-old Parvana, growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001.  When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana dresses like a boy in order to support her family.

This movie is rated PG-13 for thematic material, which includes some violent images.  The movie runs for 1 hour and 33 minutes.

No treats are provided, but you may bring your own non-messy snack to enjoy in the room during the show.  Treats may ONLY be eaten in the room showing the movie.

No registration is needed to attend this FREE event, which is sponsored by the Friends of the DeKalb Public Library.

For additional information, please contact Theresa at or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 3350.
