Film Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Some weeks ago my sister and I went to the cinema watching the new film Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children made by Tim Burton.
The protagonist of the film is a young teenager, Jake, grew up with the strange tales of his old grandfather, Abe. While Abe was tragically dying saied his grandson to go to "the Cairnholm loop of September 3, 1943" and that the "falcon" would have told him everything. Jake decides to go to the current Cairnholm looking for what his grandfather told him. There he finds the loop Abe told him and finds also the children of the orphanage where his grandfather lived for some years. In the orphanage, Jake meets Miss Alma Peregrine, the headmaster of the place, and understand that the she is the "falcon". Miss Peregrine explanes him that he is the only one able to see the Hollows, monsters that feed themselves with peculiar children's eyes.
The film is inspired by the book of the same name that I have read two or three years ago. I found the film accurate to the book and I was really happy of this. It could seems a film also for children, but I think it isn't. There are lots of scenes that a child could not see. After all, we are talking about Tim Burton!
I really liked the film, something strange made by one of the masters of strangeness even if there is a vibe similar to "Alice in Wonderland" made by the same productor.
Have a nice weekend!
