Adapted from Roald Dahl’s classic novel, Matilda tells the story of an extraordinary but lonely young girl, growing up in a world where unkind parents and spiteful school principals make all the rules. When Matilda discovers that she is gifted with strange powers, she finds deep inside herself a secret weapon to even the odds. The story of every kid's right to stand tall, no matter how small, Matilda’s amazing abilities turn the cruelties she experiences into strengths that lie beyond anyone's imagination.
