Film Club: Matilda
Thursday, 12th January 2012. Opening night for Key Stage 1 Film Club!
Today we watched Matilda, a story about an extremely curious and intelligent little girl who is very different from her low-brow, mainstream parents, who quite cruelly ignore her. As she grows older, she begins to discover that she has telekinetic powers. Not until a teacher shows her kindness for the first time does she realize that she can use those powers to do something about her sufferings and help her friends as well. Villains from the awful Miss Trunchbull, headmistress of her miserable school Crunchem Hall, to her parents and older brother begin to feel her ire.
