The film adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic was released twenty years ago today! (August 2 1996)
The film stars Mara Wilson as Matilda, Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman as Matilda's parents Embeth Davidtz as Miss Honey and Pam Ferris as Miss Trunchbull. Like the original book, the film revolves around an 8-year old genius named Matilda who possesses telekinesis and uses it to deal with her parents who do not value education, and Agatha Trunchbull, the oppressive leader of Crunchem Hall Elementary School
Matilda is undoubtedly my favourite film of all time!
