In this episode, we discuss Netflix’s new adaption of “Matilda,” based on the beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl and also on the award-winning 2010 musical All three of us have daughters; and “Matilda” hits at the feels for dads–well, for Riley. PJ and Ben disagreed, not really enjoying the film at all.
We discuss why this is, and come to realize that sometimes the genre is not “your cup of tea,” and therefore stand in the way of your enjoyment–even if you recognize that film’s merit objectively. We also discover Matilda’s greatest themes: righteousness and rebellion. Join us as we discuss 2022’s Matilda!
