Malala Yousafzai, who turned 18 over the past weekend, possesses an eloquence, courage, and purity of purpose that makes her a true role model for every young person. On July 12, her birthday and now officially Malala Day, she showed up in Syria to build a school for girls. She's an extraordinary heroine in an increasingly complicated and violent world.
The Clock is a twenty-four-hour montage constructed from thousands of moments in cinema and television history, all depicting the passage of time. Each clip—be it a recognizable film moment (we spotted Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman in Rain Main) or a scene from an obscure television show—includes a shot featuring some type of clock, watch, or reference to time.
Beautifully animated, with wonderful voice performances by Jim Parsons and Rhianna, the movie is a classic buddy movie with two characters from (literally) different worlds who have to work together to survive.
