I have never seen an episode before and my sister made me watch this with her. It was me, her, and a bunch of old people in the theater. I had no idea what was going on for half of the movie, but in the end I had a loose grasp of the characters and enjoyed what I could understand from it. The costume and the soft lighting was really nice. Also the gay subplot was really neat to see.
Had to watch and anaylze this for a film editing class paper. Matilda is such a delight to watch that I would get lost in the story and forget to pay attention the editing of the film. Matilda brings back so many nostalgic memories, I can definitely trace back to this film for my fascination and deep love for books as a child. Hands down one of my favorite childhood movies.
