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.




  • Amazing

    By Rod Gaze
    Our family watched this amazing movie which highlights the beauty and wisdom of such a young girl fighting for her rights to be educated. Shows her rise from a memorable and tough upbringing due to the Taliban and how she has risen after nearly dying. Great movie

    Beautiful. It helps you understand the whole story of Malala. Who she is, what she has gone through, her personal thoughts and the conviction and the courage she has for someone so young. He named me Malala is an inspirational story of what one girl did and has over come to do what she believed in.

    The basic story and the girl herself are wonderful, but the message should be more about the situation and less on the sainthood of this girl- otherwise the message will suffer by making this about a hero rather than the cause she stands for. It will also ruin the person she is over time.
  • 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.

    I loved her book, and this movie. There were things I would do much differently as a director, however it is a very inspiring story which these folks have done a nice job with. There are moments that are great, however the interlacing of pleasant watercolors to shape the story didn’t quite work for me. However I am very happy I watched it and I marvel at how much she has shaped the worldwide attention to girls education, she is truly a force of god.
