“Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” is based on the best- selling novel by Ransom Riggs. The movie stars Asa Butterfield and Ella Purnell acting as Jake and Emma, the main characters of the movie. This Tim Burton directed movie is rated PG-13, and was released on September 30th, 2016.

 The movie starts with Jake receiving a frantic phone call from his grandfather (Terence Stamp), asking where the keys were to his gun cabinet. Jake tries to calm him down until he and Shelly, (O-Lan Jones) his drugstore supervisor, can make it to his grandfather’s home. Once they arrive, they find him dying in the forest just behind his house. His last words to Jake were “The bird, the loop, and September 3rd, 1943”.

Ever since that moment, Jake has been discovering clues that his grandfather had left behind, leading him to the island where the school had been. When he arrives he finds that the orphanage had been destroyed, but he goes inside to investigate. As he explores, he makes a shocking discovery that seemed impossible.

 As the movie goes on, Jake learns more about the children’s peculiarities and his own, as well as encountering a fair amount of enemies.  When it comes time for him to use his new found power, Miss Peregrine is no longer there to help.

“Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” is a good movie to watch for people who enjoy adventure or mystery movies.
