Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical
Roald Dahl's novel Matilda has been adapted many times over the years, including as a 1996 movie directed by Danny DeVito. The newest iteration is now streaming on Netflix. Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical, a feature film based on the hit Broadway show, boasts a cast of talented kids, Emma Thompson as the signature villain Miss Trunchbull, and eye-popping choreography. But does it stand on its own apart from its predecessors?
The reviewers are so consistently lost in Identity Politics, they get to absurd levels. They try to sound wise & informed but they almost always go over the deep end and lose credibility. Equating the Trunchbull with fat-shaming and then Blackface?? She isn’t fat, she’s buff and muscular as hell. What a bunch of Tools.
