The Wormwoods think their daughter, Matilda, is nothing better than a scab, to be flicked away at the earliest opportunity. But unbeknown to her ghastly parents, Matilda is no ordinary child - she is a genius! When she realises the extent of her psychic powers and intelligence she starts to use them to hilarious effect to get revenge on her parents and the terrifying head teacher Miss Trunchbull.
