Sounds interesting in some way...

From the Pullizer Prize winning play by Paul Zindel, this is the story of Beatrice Hunsdorfer and her daughters, Ruth and Matilda. A middle-aged widowed eccentric, Beatrice is looking for her life in the classified ads while all about her is the rubble of an unkempt house. All she needs is the right opportunity, she says puffing on a cigarette.

Poorly equipped to survive the vagaries of modern life, she has nonetheless always managed to muddle through. Ruth, epileptic and making her way through the rebellious phase of adolescence, seems doomed to make the same mistakes as her mother. Quiet Matilda, on the other hand, seeks refuge in her animals and her schoolwork.

"Jesus, don't you hate the world, Matilda?" Beatrice asks her youngest daughter. The title of the film is also the subject of Matilda's science project at school and serves as a metaphor for the way life affects each of us differently -- how some are able to find opportunity in adversity and thrive and how some succumb when the burden becomes too heavy. This is the story of slowly drowning and grasping desperately for a lifeline only to find that there's none there and you must save yourself. "No, Mama," Matilda says, "I don't hate the world." (Nell Potts, who stars as Matilda, is the stage name of Eleanor Newman -- Joanne Woodward's real-life daughter.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0693449/ Nell Potts also known as Elinor Teresa Newman plays Matilda

i have had this movie sitting on my cable dvr for a couple of years. i have yet to figure a way to copy it. pristine HD version. :wall the girl is Paul Newman's daughter (Nell Potts). very intoxicating little girl. :heart... the mom in this will drive you crazy. she is very hard to tolerate but young Matilda makes it all worth watching.

the emule link obove is still sourced and here is a link you can stream or download.

She'd have driven me crazy if she were my mother. She'd have driven me crazy if I even knew her. Nell Potts (Matilda) was 13 when the movie was released and was only in one other movie (Rachel, Rachel when she was nine), again with her mother Joanne Woodward as the main star and her father Paul Newman as director - I guess her movie-star parents didn't encourage her to follow in their footsteps. Roberta Wallach (Ruth) was 17 - she played the hormone-saturated teenager spot-on considering (especially?) with her crazy mother's influence plus the burden of epilepsy.

The look Annie (the old lady they were boarding) gave her daughter when she kissed her goodbye is absolutely haunting. :icon_scared

Good movie.
