For our first dedicated female-directed special Movie of the Month we’re looking at a film that doesn’t shy away from tackling some big issues head on. The Breadwinner may not be the most well known film, but it’s still worthy of seeking out.

Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Tony, as well as Jess to discuss the animation, lack of bread-making and many depressing story aspects of the film.
