MATILDA (Theatrical Release USA 1996)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Matilda—spunky story—relies on stylized performances and does a marvelous job with that format. The casting is perfectly chosen for the film. Danny DeVito directed this film well. Thank you to Mara Wilson, Rea Perlman, Embeth Davidtz, Pam Ferris, and Paul Ruebens. Watch for the cameo appearance of Jean Speegle Howard, Director Ron Howard’s mother.

This film is about a young girl who loves to learn and finds her own ways to make that happen. 

Additional Thanks 

Thank you to Director Danny DeVito for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Danny DeVito, Michael Shamberg, Stacey Sher, and Felicity Dahl for making the film possible. Cast includes: Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Embeth Davidtz, Pam Ferris, and Mara Wilson. 

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a wonderful film and more than worth watching and re-watching. Some stylized performances by the head mistress of Matilda’s school are exceptionally well done. Great work for all involved in production.
