Young Matilda loves to read and has a thirst for knowledge, but is treated poorly by her uncaring and self-absorbed parents. When she meets her kind, empathetic teacher Miss Honey, Matilda is encouraged to embrace her uniqueness and reach for the stars – a lesson that gives her the confidence to stand up to the school’s cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. It is in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds and overwhelming degradation that Matilda finds her inner power, inspiring her teacher and her classmates to shake the oppressive yolks of the powerful.
