Based on the beloved book from Roald Dahl, this film adaptation tells the story of Matilda, an extremely intelligent and mature young girl who shares a home with parents who ignore her and a brother who mistreats her. Upon starting school, Matilda grows close to the kind and caring teacher Miss Honey but also falls foul of the bulling principal of the school, Miss Trunchbull. When Matilda discovers that she has telekinetic powers, she sets out to right all of the wrongs in the world around her. This timeless and funny tale puts kindness above all else and has a strong anti-bullying message at its heart whilst also being wildly entertaining.
Activities to support engagement, debate and reflection alongside a screening from the Activate: Effecting Change strand of the festival.
