He Named Me Malala November 08

Films released in Sydney this week ending 14 November

He Named me Malala Will try to review. I’m not sure about this one. While it is subject matter that appeals to me, my internal radar is going off the spectrum with warnings over the trailer. Super important subject, so I’d like to check it out, and I did like An Inconvenient Truth. Could be […]
