However, her mother is more concerned about her dancing, her father is a crook, and her school principal is focused on cruelly punishing children. Yet through it all she has her stories that she shares with a local librarian, one in particular tends to stick close to her and another special person. Never the less, Matilda manages to make a change in the lives of those around her, as well as learning a few things about herself.

Gilmore Girls- I have watched the whole series so many times on my DVR that I haven't had to crack open the box series set given to me for Christmas many moons ago! :):

Yet, in the original we get to see the best friend and loving relationship between mother and daughter. As Lorelai and Rory conquer life from high school to love lives there is nothing that can stop them. With a cup of coffee in hand, an inn to run, and socialite grandparents the adventures of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore are endless.
