A very theatrical movie for this Christmas, in this adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic children’s novel.

Roald Dahl’s Matilda: the Musical has the advantage of knowing what it wants, and especially whom it is for, and counts on the brilliant Dahl story. It adapts the rhythm well with a number of surprises in the script.

It is a “film” that works best due the scenes than the sequences, following the theatrical structures.

Of course, counting on the performance by Emma Thomson, who, as is customary, nails the part, yet again displaying her dramatic savvy in theater and in film. She is brilliant in this part.

The soundtrack counts on catchy numbers that are well suited for a musical of our times.

An ideal movie for the young ones, with its tale full of cheer and humor.
