Matilda is a 1996 film directed by Danny DeVito. It is based on Roald Dahl's children's novel. The film was released by TriStar Pictures.
Matilda is an intelligent girl with idiotic parents who pay no attention to her. When Matilda goes to school, she meets her teacher, the kind Miss Honey and the abusive principal Miss Trunchbull. Over time, she discovers that she has telekinesis. Matilda must then use her special powers to triumph over Miss Trunchbull.
One major difference between the novel and the film is the setting. In the novel, Matilda lives in England where Roald Dahl lived (although his parents were Norwegian and he grew up in Wales). In the movie, Matilda lives in the USA and most of the film was shot in the East Whittier district of Los Angeles, California. The only character to remain British in the film is Agatha Trunchbull (the antagonist) played by Pam Ferris.
Considering the original work was a short, fairly thin story, much was added to bring it up to feature length,...,
