Matilda / Madeline DVD
From best-selling author Roald Dahl and the unique vision of Danny DeVito comes Matilda, the story of a quite extraordinary little girl (Mara Wilson - Mrs Doubtfire). Unfortunately for Matilda, her father Harry (Danny DeVito - Mars Attacks!) is a used car salesman who bamboozles innocent customers, and her mother Zinnia (Rhea Perlman - Cheers) lives for bingo and soap operas. Far from noticing what a special child Matilda is, they barely notice her at all. They bundle Matilda off to Crunchem Hall, a bleak school were students cower before the whip-hand and fist of a hulking monster, headmistress Miss Trunchbull (Pam ferris - The Darling Buds of May). But amid Crunchem's darkness, Matilda discovers remarkable skills - including a very special talent that allows her to turn the tables on the wicked grown-ups in her world!

As Miss Clavel, Frances McDormand glides with grace And Nigel Hawthorne is the villainous Lord "Cucuface" and as the smallest one in the rain or shine Hatty Jones is the fearless Madeline. Based on the popular story books by Ludwig Bemelmans, the mischievous Madeline character is brought to vivid life this charming family adventure. Madeline and her eleven friends live at a school run by Miss Clavel (Frances McDormand) in an old house in Paris. The smallest of the girls, Madeline, is also the most adventurous! She loses her appendix but gains an awesome scar, falls into the River Seine only to be rescued by a dog called Genevieve, and matches wits with Pepito, the devilish son of a Spanish Ambassador who moves in next door. However, when stuffy Lord Covington puts the future of the school in jeopardy, it's up to Madeline and her friends to save the day!
