Danny DeVito directs this adaptation of Roald Dahl's darkly delicious children's fantasy about the daughter of selfish parents who discovers she has magical powers. Mrs Doubtfire's Mara Wilson is spellbinding as the gifted youngster while Pam 'Where The Heart Is' Ferris terrifies as her child-hating headmistress. DeVito also appears as one of the many monstrous grown-ups, along with his then-wife Rhea Perlman (Carla from Cheers). A delightfully twisted fairy-tale - and not just for kids.
