He Named Me Malala

You may have heard it in the news, or on the television already, but the story of Malala Yousafzai is simply inspiring. For those who do not know, Malala spoke out against the Taliban that were in her region, and then incredibly survived an assassination attempt against her. Left wounded and in desperate help, she was flown to England for treatment. Upon which she gained huge publicity on the act and drew attention to the many children around the world who are unable to receive an education.

To throw a few more accolades in and emphasise her importance, Malala won a Nobel Peace Prize, spoke at the UN, met President Obama and was named by Time magazine as one of 'The 100 Most Influential People in the World' - so this movie about her is something quite special, and one that must be seen surely.

Yet, despite how interesting the true story is, the way in which the movie was crafted does not do it justice and seems like a scattered puzzle from the middle, to the start, and finally the meaningful ending. Structurally, it would have been quite beneficial (and cinematic) if the story seemed more of a journey and pursued in the linear narrative.

Craft aside, the story is quintessential and gives a much more visual, and epic emphasis on her inspiration and what she has gone through in her life, the positive change and opportunities created for others.
