Matilda Wormwood is a little girl with a big imagination and a love of reading. Unfortunately she also has terrible parents who do little to further her curiosity or support her in any way, and are instead focused on watching trashy TV and inventing dodgy money-making schemes. Matilda is excited to attend her new school, Crunchem Hall, but upon arrival finds it to be an oppressive place led by the scary Miss Trunchbull. However she also finds an inspirational teacher there, Miss Honey, who encourages Matilda to remain resolute, kind, and inquisitive. Together with her school friends, Matilda is intent on standing up for what’s right, using the powers she finds within herself to challenge authority and make the world a better place. Based on Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book and adapted from the equally adored stage musical, with songs by Tim Minchin, this is an inspirational coming-of-age film about rewriting your own story.

The film contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
