Synopsis

Wouldn't we all want to be Roald Dahl's Matilda, with her sunny self-reliance and special powers? Well, that will go double in this fantastic adaptation of Dahl's book, one which faithfully captures his unique storytelling voice and spirit. At the fearsome Crunchem Hall school, Matilda makes a friend of the kind Miss Honey - and an enemy of the bullying headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. But Matilda isn't one to give in to bullies - and after all, what are special powers for if not to teach them a lesson?

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. "
