Details About the Film

This film is part of the series Screentime: Discover Film, Together

Gifted child Matilda Wormwood (Mara Wilson) is stuck with an aloof and mean-spirited family that does not understand her and faces cruelty and terror from her school principal. When Matilda discovers that she has telekinetic powers, she plots to radically change her life. Supported by her beloved teacher Miss Honey (Embeth Davidtz), Matilda uses her powers to get even with her family and free her school from its tyrannical principal. Brimming with spirited comedy for kids and adults, Matilda remains one of the few children’s films that understands that kids too can find humor and levity in the dark and scary.
