Class is in session with Tim Burton, Eva Green, Asa Butterfield and Ella Purnell!
Whether or not you’re already a fan of Ransom Riggs‘ best selling trilogy, you’re likely to find some magic in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the latest feature film from director Tim Burton. Eva Green, who previously worked with Tim Burton on Dark Shadows, plays the title role as the headmistress of a school for “peculiars”: those born with extraordinary abilities. Whether the children are invisible, lighter than air, or even filled with bees, the class at Miss Peregrine’s are kept protected from the rest of the world through a special “loop” in time. It is when the loop becomes broken, however, than one young boy, Jake (Asa Butterfield), must find a way to protect the Peculiar children and, in doing so, perhaps discover his own peculiarity.
