This film adaptation of Roald Dahl tells the story of Matilda Wormwood, a gifted girl forced to put up with a crude, distant father and mother.
Worse, Agatha Trunchbull, the evil principal at Matilda's school, is a terrifyingly strict bully.
However, when Matilda realises she has the power of telekinesis, she begins to defend her friends from Trunchbull's wrath and fight back against her unkind parents.
