The Trailer for He Named Me Malala Is an Intimate Look at the 17-Year-Old Nobel Winner 

Malala Yousafzai has already captivated the world, and charmed viewers on Jon Stewart last night. Now acclaimed director Davis Guggenheim (Waiting for “Superman”, An Inconvenient Truth) gives us an intimate look at the bubbly young woman behind the activist.

Superhuman accomplishments aside, Malala is painted as an ordinary girl: She goes to school, has celebrity crushes, and jokes around with her younger brothers. (One is “a really good boy,” while the other is “the laziest one.”) The movie opens Oct. 2.
