The Plotline for the movie:
The film will follow the same plot; as the original musical and book. A genius girl; with a passion for books; is born to parents; who are too busy to look after her properly, so she’s sent off in disgrace; to live with an aunt and uncle on their farm.
After being cruelly treated by her family members one day – especially when they do not let her into the TV room because it was “her turn” but then allow Uncle Harry’s son Trevor into view his programme on television – Matilda starts teaching herself about words from library books which she hides under her pillow at night. This allows her access to power that can be used against those around her if necessary, such as marking all of Aunt Fanny’s dresses with the word ‘TART.’
Aunt Fanny and Uncle Harry are not happy, so they threaten to send her back home if she doesn’t stop reading books. Matilda soon becomes really upset about this threat because she does not want to return to a life of abuse where nobody cares for her.

Matilda’s teacher Mrs. Wormwood is also unsupportive as well; when Matilda comes up; with an idea; for celebrating ‘International Woman’s Day in school; by letting girls watch Trevor; on TV while boys; would have knitting lessons, Mrs. Wormwood rejects; it outright. She then tells all of the students that women need men before proclaiming: “We’ll be here long after you’ve gone.” Comments like these from adults
Matilda soon becomes really upset about this threat because she does not want to return to a life of abuse where nobody cares for her. She starts thinking that the only way out is death.
