Matilda Directed by Danny DeVito

Critics reviews

The bellicosity of Matilda doesn’t manage to completely stomp out the sweetness at the center of this Carrie for tykes, and DeVito makes up for his adaptation’s raucousness by arming his little protagonist (played by a poignantly sullen Mara Wilson) with an inner and outer strength that is lovely to behold.
