Separated at Birth: Matilda and Carrie

Roald Dahl’s Matilda and Stephen King’s Carrie

Two young girls, misunderstood and mistreated by their dysfunctional families. Abused at school, they suddenly discover they possess telekinetic powers, and use these powers to turn the tables on their tormentors.

Weird that I never noticed that before.

The 400 Blows

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, film buff and occasional reviewer, and former private detective. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
