Matilda (1996) is a fantasy based on the children’s book by Roald Dahl, and directed by Danny DeVito, about a girl who is driven to seek vengeance against her tormentors at home and at school, and develops psychokinetic powers to do so.

Life Lesson:

You make your own happiness.

Movie Scene:

Narrator: “Matilda already knew that she was somewhat different from her family. She saw that whatever she needed in this world, she’d have to get herself.”

[…] “And as bad as things were before, that’s how good they became … And Matilda found, to her great surprise, that life could be fun, and she decided to have as much of it as possible. After all, she was a very smart kid.”
