I got this one, I let someone else have a turn though. I like the actor connection.

In case, tomorrow I'll drop a hint (well, another hint; there's quite a big one in the plot summary). But yes Marion, I'm rather certain it's a movie you've either seen or heard of, it's totally in your area of interest

Well, there's music involved for sure! But what genre? It's in the plot

Also, new hint:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
It's the only movie where both Kim Basinger and Gina Lollobrigida are (in a non-conventional way) starring

A child who lives with unpleasant relatives learns that they have magical powers. They find a mixture of more pleasant and more hostile people, when they go to school. This movie is not part of the Harry Potter franchise.

As this is the "easy clues thread," I'll throw in some more direct clues right away, behind this spoiler. There's no shame in looking, but out of curiosity, I'd like you to say whether you looked, when you post your guesses.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The main character is a girl, and she's the only person with magic powers, in the movie.

Yes. It is Matilda. She has telekinesis, which she uses to punish cruel adults.

How about this one:

A group of 14 unexpected guests shows up at a short man's house and convince him to go on an adventure to reclaim treasure from a dragon.

I'm also happy to let someone else give the next clue
