Unlike her bratty brother & mean parents, Matilda becomes a very sweet & extremely intelligent girl who is very anxious to go to school & read books. After a while, her parents send her to a school with the worst principal in the world, a very sweet teacher, & good friends. While trying to put up with her parent's & principal's cruelty, she starts to unwittingly unleash telekinetic powers that destroy a television & make a reptile fly on her teacher. With enough practice, Matilda starts to learn to control her telekinetic powers & soon using them on her principal so she can drive her away from the school.
Our group's Comments •Matilda is a good movie and personally we enjoy it very much and we like all the casts. The star of show, Mara Wilson, is a charming and marvelous child actress. Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman were wonderful as the parents who didn't care about their daughter. Pam Ferris was brilliant as the scary head mistress of Matilda's School. Matilda!!!!!
