Matilda is a 1996 American comedy movie directed by Danny DeVito and starring Mara Wilson. It is based on the book of the same name. Matilda Wormwood is a brilliant child of only six years old, who grew up between rude and ignorant parents. His father Harry works as a car salesman while his mother Zinnia is a housewife. Both ignore their daughter to the point of forgetting to enroll her in school. This way Matilda always stays at home or in the bookstore, where she usually stimulates her imagination. After a series of strange events at home when Matilda discovers that she has magical powers, Harry decides to send her to school. The place is controlled with an iron fist by Principal Agatha Trunchbull, which makes Matilda only feel right next to Professor Honey, who tries to help her as much as possible. I have reviewed this movie several times and had not given my review of this movie! Chose the actors very well, special effects were very well done and was directed by Dany DeVito made the character Harry the father of Matilda. So my movie rating is 8.0.

Americanized, but still good
One of my most highly-anticipated films, ‘Matilda’ is both a treat and a disappointment. The casting of Mara Wilson as the title character is ingenious – the little girl exudes the qualities set forth in Roald Dahl’s classic. Unfortunately, the filmmakers apparently could not resist the urge to alter the book, in which Matilda is British and lives in a small village. The movie version, of course, depicts Matilda as American, but what’s worse, that she lives in a larger area. This detracts somewhat from the bucolic setting of the book, although not enough to create a starkly different environment.
The casting of Embeth Davidtz as “Miss Honey” was another great choice. While not what I had pictured from the book, Miss Davidtz captures the warmth and energy of the young teacher. Pam Ferris, as the grotesque “Miss Trunchbull,” is simply outstanding. Both her demeanor and her looks bring the book’s character alive.
‘Matilda,’ while straying from the book’s true form, is still highly enjoyable to watch, especially for those of us who have read the Dahl’s masterpiece. Those who enjoy ‘Matilda’ should also enjoy the movie adaptation of “The Witches,” another Roald Dahl classic.
