This 1996 classic film, which told the story about a young genius girl with telekinetic abilities, warmed the hearts of hundreds of people around the world.

It’s over a decade old now, but the film’s initial charm is still there and with characters such as Miss Jennifer Honey, Bruce Bogtrotter and Miss Trunchbull, it’s hard to forget. The film’s all-star cast includes Danny DeVito, Mara Wilson, Embeth Davidtz and Pam Ferris, along with an unforgettable soundtrack by David Newman.
