Trama

From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale. Sixteen-year-old Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.

Critica

REVIEW:
The kids are all right, especially the weird ones, in the company of Tim Burton.
Based on the popular young-adult novel by Ransom Riggs, the winningly quirky fantasy adventure Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (***½ out of four; rated PG-13; in theaters nationwide Friday) acts like a greatest-hits collection for the iconic director in the way it flaunts oddball grown-ups, shows normal kids thrust into the nuttiest situations and makes the strange oh-so-cool.
This is pretty much Burton doing an X-Men movie, with a plucky yesteryear vibe and evil Samuel L. Jackson thrown in for extra fun.
Jake (Asa Butterfield) is a teenage boy living in Florida who feels like an outsider when he spends time with anybody but his kooky grandfather (Terence Stamp), who’s found mysteriously murdered in the woods. Jake wants to investigate the tall tales and old photographs his grandfather shared with him, so with a thumb's up from his psychiatrist (Allison Janney), Jake and his oblivious dad (Chris O’Dowd) head to Wales.
It’s there that Jake’s mind gets blown when he meets Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) and her house full of young Peculiars with abilities, including human matchstick Olive (Lauren McCrostie), reanimator Enoch (Finlay MacMillan) and weightless Emma (Ella Purnell), who feels an innate connection with Jake from their first meeting.
A very cool time-travel setup has them reliving the same day from World War II over and over, resetting right before a Nazi bomb explodes their home. It’s Miss Peregrine's way of hiding her children from the monstrous Willows, led by white-haired villain Mr. Barron (Jackson), who become more human — and more powerful — when they eat the eyeballs of Peculiars. (One scene involving Jackson, a fork and a dinner table is not for the squeamish.) There are shades of Harry Potter in the adaptation by Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service), but with much more of an underdog vibe, like a fantastical Bad News Bears. Jake is tapped by Miss Peregrine to be a guardian of sorts for her crew, though he doesn’t figure out his peculiarity for a while. (It’s not exactly the sexiest of powers, but it’s helpful for the overarching task at hand.)
Butterfield exhibits just the right amount of awkwardness for Jake, especially as he grows closer to Emma. A new face to most on this side of the pond, Purnell gives off warmth but also an understandable sense of distance with her character, who has spent decades in a heartbroken state.
This is Green’s second go-round with Burton — after playing a vampire villainess in his Dark Shadows redo — and her maternal Miss P, who’s akin to a metal-band reimagining of Mary Poppins, is a natural fit for the underrated French actress after a long run of femme fatales. Curious characters and gothic-tinged settings are specialties in Burton’s canon, and he lets loose with his stop-motion tendencies in two memorable scenes: One where Enoch gives life to a few Frankensteined creatures and also a climactic battle involving skeletons and a boardwalk carnival that would make Ray Harryhausen proud.
After a long run of dystopian YA movies for teen crowds, Burton is just the right guy to make cinema weird again.
