Animated film about Afghanistan refugee in top ten movies list

The end of the year brings many lists: top movies, top books, and top restaurants. Atop the Salt Lake Tribune's top ten 10 movies for 2021 list is an animated film named Flee. 

Flee begins with the story of a refugee, Amin, who leaves Afghanistan for Denmark. It describes through its protagonist the risks of unauthorized migration: deportation, of course, and also broken relationships as a result. The official trailer is available on IMDb and other sites.

The film won multiple honors at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Reviews from AP News, NPR, NY Times, and Wall Street Journal praise the film.
