Angelina Jolie on her animated Oscar contender ‘The Breadwinner‘: ‘I hope this film does speak to young girls around the world’
From Belle to Rey to Wonder Woman, 2017 was a banner year for female heroes in mainstream Hollywood blockbusters. Sadly, most of the year’s major animated films didn’t exactly follow suit. With the exception of Cars 3‘s Cruz Ramirez, male heroes drove most of the antics in cartoons like The Boss Baby, The Lego Batman Movie, and even Coco. If you’re looking for an animated heroine on par with Diana — minus her Lasso of Truth and bullet-catching bracelets — look no further than The Breadwinner, the latest release from the internationally focused family friendly distributor Gkids and a dark-horse Oscar contender for the Best Animated Feature statue at this year’s Oscars. (The film is already vying for a Golden Globe this weekend.)
Directed by Nora Twomey and produced by Angelina Jolie, The Breadwinner tells the story of a young Afghan girl named Parvana, who defies the restrictive Taliban regime to support her family after her father is imprisoned. It may sound like challenging subject matter, but Jolie believes that Parvana’s heroism will resonate with audiences her age. “I hope this film does speak to young girls around the world, and young boys,” the Oscar-winning actress-turned-director remarks in this new interview clip exclusively premiering on Yahoo Entertainment.
Jolie has witnessed the film’s impact on children first hand, having previewed it for a group of young viewers and taken note of their reactions. “The first time a child is exposed to this kind of life… it moves them to want to value their education and their opportunity. It awakens a sense of that fight for human rights in young people.” Who knows? Maybe The Breadwinner could be the origin story for a new generation of real-life heroes.
The Breadwinner is currently playing in theaters. Watch the trailer below:

Some news on Angelina and and the Jolie Pitt Dalton Helic Foundation that was posted recently online.
Angelina Jolie donated over $1 million to her foundation in just a span of two years.
According to The Sun, the Jolie Pitt Dalton Helic Foundation was launched in 2015. At that time, the “Maleficent” star gave over $499,000 to help finance the women’s programs.
Two years later, Jolie’s contributions to the foundation have reached over $1.35 million. The figures escalated after she revealed that she was sexually abused by disgraced producer, Harvey Weinstein. Jolie and her friends’ foundation are dedicated to stopping violence against women.
Accounts also revealed that Jolie gave the foundation over $800,000 after she exposed Weinstein’s wrongdoings. The producer denied sexually harassing Jolie in 1998.
“I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did. This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable,” she told the New York Times in October.
