From the best-selling author Roald Dahl and the unique vision of Danny DeVito comes Matilda, the story of a quite extraordinary little girl. Unfortunately for Matilda, her father Harry is a used car salesman who bamboozles innocent customers, and her mom Zinnia lives for bingo and soap operas. Far from noticing what a special child Matilda is, they barely notice her at all! They bundle Matilda off to Crunchem Hall, a bleak school where students cower before the whip-hand and fist of a hulking monster, headmistress Miss Trunchbull. But amid Crunchem's darkness, Matilda discovers remarkable skills - including a very special talent that allows her to turn the tables on the wicked grown-ups in her world!
