Synopsis

From the director of Waiting for “Superman” and the Academy Award®-Winning An Inconvenient Truth* comes this highly inspiring and deeply moving documentary about courage, survival, and empowerment. He Named Me Malala tells the remarkable true story of teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was attacked by Taliban gunmen in Pakistan for advocating girls’ education. Rather than be silenced, Malala emerged as a global voice for the education rights of all children, and in 2014, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize recipient. This intimate glimpse into the life of an extraordinary girl is sure to inspire your entire family!

Reviews

Tom Long Detroit News | October 09, 2015

While Malala's saintly status is front and center, there are lingering, disquieting and incomplete issues all over the place.

Soren Anderson Seattle Times | October 08, 2015

Truly a remarkable person.

Ty Burr Boston Globe | October 08, 2015

The film is worthy, obviously, and it forces us to think about the prices paid by our unexpected heroes.

Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer | October 08, 2015

It's quite a story, and if Guggenheim goes overboard in the telling of it, that's perfectly understandable.

Jim Slotek Toronto Sun | October 08, 2015

What we absorb from He Named Me Malala is the idea of the hero as a product of action rather than being.

Barbara VanDenburgh Arizona Republic | October 08, 2015

Though polished and image-conscious, offering too little insight into the physical and psychological trauma suffered in the bullet's wake, the film is nevertheless moving without resorting to saccharine overtures.

Linda Barnard Toronto Star | October 08, 2015

It's impossible not to feel affection for and protective of this young woman.
