He Named Me Malala
After the Taliban tries to kill her for speaking out on behalf of girls' education, Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai emerges as a leading advocate for children's rights and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
I was deeply moved by this movie. I watched it at the theatre on a rainy day during my Vancouver tour in 2015. Malala is a heroine in our midst and I am thrilled that her journey was rendered with such nuance and beauty. And I was so touched by the heartwarming, funny speech she made as she accepted honourary Canadian Citizenship.
