About the Movie

This inspiring documentary about courage, survival, and triumph over adversity tells the remarkable 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 children, and in December 2014, became the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film is worthy, obviously, and it forces us to think about the prices paid by our unexpected heroes. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Oct 8, 2015

Fresh: While Malala's saintly status is front and center, there are lingering, disquieting and incomplete issues all over the place. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Oct 9, 2015

Rotten: The result is a film more educational than engrossing; high schoolers should see it - the rest of us, maybe not. – Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail, Oct 9, 2015

Fresh: A rousing profile of the teenage Pakistani girl the Taliban tried to kill for her belief in education and of the unintended pleasures is registering how Malala has become the worst possible nightmare to her failed murderers. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Nov 23, 2015

The trick is not to turn this icon into an icon - because what she stands for (which makes her stand out all the more) is “just” an everywoman-child with a bullet to the brain whose lust to learn becomes a mantra for millions. In other words, anything but normal. Inadvertently, this Tiny Mighty with normal wishes for a normal education and for that of worldwide others has now raised the bar about being human and the power one person’s inspired motivation can ignite in us all. The filmmaker handles our ride through Malalaland with care and insight. Our learning curve is only as steep as our fear to reach out for it. Brava Malala!

Impacting perspective for families with Teens

Powerful, invocative, poignant and inspiring. We really enjoyed how the harsh realities were woven in with enchanted visual story-book graphics… merging legend with the current reality.

He named me Malala

This really is an amazing story, it truly gives out the meaning to all the girls who deserve certain rights of freedom.
