Though MATILDA's decision to stand up for those who can't or won't stand up for themselves is admirable, there's plenty of iffy stuff here. The movie is relatable for KIDS going through their own growing pains, but the fantasy-base nature of the way MATILDA copes with her problems doesn't offer many realistic solutions for young viewers. The film discusses how most ideas come from hard work and careful planning. When MATILDA's parents aren't neglecting her, they're berating her. MATILDA's principal openly hat children in her charge. MATILDA decides to punish her parents-but she also bravely stands up for others and almost always maintains a positive attitude. MATILDA is an avid reader with vivid imagination-unlike her parents and brother, who want to watch TV all the time. Cartoonish violence, nearly all of it perpetrated by bullying school principal. A girl is picked up by her pigtails and flung over fence. Boy is tossed out of the window like a javelin. Children who displease the evil principal are put in a chokey, dark closet lined with nails and broken glass. A boy is forced to eat an entire gigantic chocolate cake in front of all his classmates; when he finish, angry principal smashes a giant cake plate on his head. Reference to suicide. Parents need to know that MATILDA is a 1996 surreal family movie based on the book by Roald Dahl.

A boy is forced to eat an entire gigantic chocolate cake in front of all his classmates; when he finish, angry principal smashes a giant cake plate on his head.

When MATILDA's parents aren't neglecting her, they're berating her-so she decides to punish them. But she also stood up for the principal's victims. The film explores themes of youthful independence and personal identity. From the moment she's born, MATILDA WORMWOOD couldn't be more different from her family. Her father is an unscrupulous used car salesman, and her mother is a ninny who spends every day playing bingo. MATILDA learns to take care of herself, and she's incredibly smart. When her father finally allowed her to go to school, it's dream come true for MATILDA. Her sprits sag only a little when she finds that the principal, Miss Trunchbull, openly hats all KIDS.

Base on Roald Dahl's popular book, this fantasy explores themes of youthful independence and personal identity.
