UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum have teamed up for a matinee screening series, Family Flicks Film Series, of new and classic family-friendly films from around the world. Based on Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s novel, Matilda tells the story of a remarkable girl born into a family of self-absorbed brutes, played by the deliciously campy Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, who fail to recognize the pint-size wonder in their midst. When she finds a kindred spirit in her teacher, they take on their tormentors in this charmingly offbeat—and slightly dark—fairy tale.
