Six-and-a-half year-old Matilda Wormwood (Mara Wilson) wants nothing more than to read her books and go to school. Her cruel, TV-loving parents (real-life couple Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman) think school is for losers. But when they discover Crunchem Hall run by the tyrannical Headmistress Trunchbull (an unforgettable Pam Ferris), they change their tune.
As Matilda is plunged into a nightmarish school where young girls are thrown around like hammers and bad students are locked up in a torture device called the Chokey, her only lights in the dark are the kind, positive Miss Honey (Embeth Davidtz) and the magical powers that Matilda is just beginning to manifest.
From its spirited hero to its horrid villain, MATILDA is filled with memorable characters, riotous scenarios, and, above all, a love for learning. Weird, funny, and heartwarming, with dynamic direction from Danny DeVito, MATILDA is a family classic that captures the whimsical spirit of Roald Dahl’s beloved novel and showcases an empowering role model for the little bookworms in your life. Missing out on it would be a fate worse than the Chokey.
To commemorate the arrival of CAPTAIN MARVEL, we’re celebrating GIRL POWER: a series of films highlighting some of the best, brightest, most badass women ever to grace the silver screen.
