See the world from a kid's-eye view with Matilda, a modern fairytale that mixes hilarious humor with the magical message of love.
Mrs. Doubtfire's Mara Wilson stars as Matilda, a super-smart little girl who's woefully misunderstood by her parents (Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman), her brother (Brian Levinson), and the evil school principal Miss Trunchball (Pam Ferris). But with the help of a brave best friend (Kiami Davael) and a wonderful teacher (Embeth Davidtz), Matilda discovers she doesn't have to get mad to get even.
'With her sweet-sad face, Mara Wilson is a perfect Matilda.' - Susan Wlosczyna, USA Toady
'Slick kids movie that preserves Roald Dahl's gleeful nastiness.' - Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
'Dark, beautiful adaptation of Roald Dahl story is uncompromising, entertaining and moving.' - Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
'Matilda doesn't condescend to children, it doesn’t sentimentalize, and as a result it feels heartfelt and sincere. It's funny, too.' - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
