Genre: Comedy, Family Film, Fantasy
This is a wonderful film that the entire family can enjoy and is one of my childhood favourites 🙂 . The story is perfect as it is entertaining and captivating, light and has some serious tones too. The dialog is brilliant and witty plus the humour in this film is very strong (still funny even nowadays). My favourite moment is the dance/powers scene (trying not to spoil 😛 ) as it is unique to this film and very memorable. I also loved the tale of Miss Honey (Embeth Davidtz) and Matilda’s attempt to fix it. The cast is also great in this movie, Mara Wilson (Matida), Danny DeVito (Mr. Wormwood) and Pam Ferris (Trunchbull) 🙂 . The overall feel to the film is very nostalgic and a typical 90’s movie but it still works and can become a family classic. Personally, I wished the ending had gone slight better were Matilda could keep her gifts (won’t spoil) but it still works 🙂 . This is a great book adaption and a definitely recommend this film 🙂 Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
