Matilda (Mara Wilson) is an extraordinarily intelligent young girl. Her family do not understand her, or realize their daughter's talents. They are simply obsessed with the things money can buy them, and having the biggest television. They do not understand why Matilda would rather read books than watch TV. When Matilda goes to school her teacher Miss Honey (Embeth Davidtz) notices Matilda's potential, and begins trying to teach her in private. Matilda gets on far better with the teacher than she ever has with her family. However, Miss Honey's aunt, Miss. Trunchball (Pam Ferris) is the fearsome headmistress of the school. She terrorizes the children, threatening them with terrible punishments should she disobey, and seeks to control every single aspect of Miss Honey's life. When Matilda develops an astonishing new power to move things with her mind, she realizes she has the chance to get revenge on both her family and Miss Trunchball.
