DIRECTOR: DANNY DEVITO
CAST: MARA WILSON, DANNY DEVITO, RHEA PERLMAN, PAUL REUBENS
Sweet little Matilda Wormwood (Mara Wilson) is a wunderkind who’s read her way through the local library, but her precociousness goes unappreciated by her neglectful, trashy parents (Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito, also directing.) This means war, and with the help of a kindred-spirit teacher (Embeth Davidtz) and awakening telekinetic powers, there’s no end to the hilarious havoc that Matilda can wreak. Think Carrie with training wheels.
