"Matilda doesn't condescend to children, [...] and as a result it feels heartfelt and sincere."Chicago Sun-Times

"Gleefully preserves Dahl's dark comic tone, which should delight both kids and parents."Capital Times

"[An] offbeat dark fantasy gem."Common Sense Media

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