I was so glad to hear that Malala Yousafzai’s story was being made into a movie that my daughter and I could watch together.  Certainly, we’ve all heard most of the parts of her story but I knew there would be pieces we hadn’t known.

We were given a sneak peak of the movie and were captivated and delighted by the documentary film.  Highly recommend it!!  We loved seeing the family connections she shares and our hearts were warmed by their obvious love for each other.  It was very hard to watch and try to understand how the situation escalated with the Taliban in Pakistan and even harder to realize how her family has been affected by the attack.  Definitely worth it, though.  We’ll be tuning in to watch on Monday night and encourage you to as well!

From the official movie release:

 

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.
