People tend to gather with people who have the same orientation and can help to fulfill the needs and desires of each. This difference causes variations in behavior among people. In social life, variation in the behavior of each individual are often found, although sometimes they have similarities in such as specific goals, economic background, social strata, etc. These differences in behavior underlie the birth of social exchange theory based on Peter M. Blau's perspective. This research is included as descriptive-qualitative research. The data sources that the researchers used in this study are primary data sources in the form of Matilda film by Roald Dahl and secondary data sources in the form of several literature related to the theory of literary sociology, social exchange, and social interaction. The researchers collected data through listening, watching, and note-taking techniques. The results of this study indicate that there are several forms of social exchange in the film caused by different factors, namely Matilda's loneliness, mutual love, anger, and several other contexts. This social exchange demonstrates how people who share the same orientation can help fulfill each other's needs and wants.
