Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different, but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by Trunchbull, she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman mastermind to give Miss
Trunchbull what she deserves, and Matilda might be just the one to do it!
