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.
