Matilda – ★★★

Such a great performance by Mara Wilson and great job by all the actual 6 year olds playing 6 year olds. Too much time early with the family and focusing on the adults.

Watched this with the kids because they (and I) loved the new Matilda the Musical adaptation on Netflix. They liked this version ok but definitely still prefer the new musical and not just because its newer and “old things are boring and not funny.”
