“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is based on a novel by the same name, written by Ransom Riggs. This beautifully, strange story follows Jacob, a 16 yr old boy grieving over his grandfathers death. When Jacob receives a bizarre letter, he embarks on a mysterious journey to a Welsh island where his grandfather grew up. There he discovers that the tales his beloved Grandfather once shared with him are not only true, but alive and well in Miss Peregrine’s home. Danger and mystery deepen, when Jacob befriends the children of the island and begins to unlock his own special powers.
Screenplay by Jane Goldman, directed by Tim Burton
