Matilda Wormwood is born special. Reading books at the library by age five, she has an accelerated thirst for knowledge. Unappreciated by her vacuous parents, who show more interest in looks than books, Matilda’s astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers are only noticed when she starts school at the renowned Crunchem Hall. Her new teacher, Miss Honey, sees the unique qualities in Matilda and the two quickly bond over their similar dysfunctional family lives.
But things don’t go well for Matilda when she gets on the wrong side of her school’s horrendous headmistress, Miss Agatha Trunchbull, whose methods of punishment are truly outrageous. Matilda must learn to deal with these rotten circumstances, and using her powers to stage a little revolution against the perpetrators, Matilda learns that sometimes you have to be “a little bit naughty” to overcome the tyranny in the ultimate ‘David and Goliath’ story.
