Among its inhabitants girl who knew how to handle a fire, the girl whose feet do not touch the ground, and the invisible boy twins, who were able to communicate without words. When Grandpa dies, 16-year-old Jacob receives a mysterious letter and sent to the island where his grandfather grew up. There he finds the children who had seen only in photographs.
Feedback on the film:
I did not intend to watch this work closely. And my wife is opposite. Well of course I had to look. Before that I saw reviews from different bloggers … And … somehow it sufficed me.
But in fact the film is quite good. And besides, it’s Tim Burton. (Yes, I did not pay attention to bloggers). And here and there Tim Burton somehow manifests himself. But then, by the way, you can say that Burton “smells” more expressively in those pictures where Burton is not a director (“The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Coraline in a country of nightmares”). But I will not quibble. To be Burton Burton or not to be – to decide Burton. And the film is about that.
Teenage boy Jake grows up and develops as an outstanding personality. This is understandable to the audience, but so far not to him. How does this clear up? He knows about something unusual his unusual grandfather. It turns out that his grandfather did not fly off the reels, but sent him information that he went to Wales to the mysterious Miss Peregrine. And, naturally, this can not be a spoiler, because the name of the work is working on it.
The psychologist advised Jake’s parents to change the situation for their son. So the story was fastened. Further the plot only grows stronger. This has been happening since when Jake meets the inhabitants of the house. All with hidden abilities.
Well, since I started talking about one actor, I’ll say a few words about Eve Greene (Miss Peregrine). In the title role – Ace Butterfield. Well, an associate in love – Ella Pernell (in the role of Emma) … Actually here is the picture that every character here is very important and weighty. But I’ll only say more about Terence Stempe (Grandpa Abe). Well, just because it’s a very familiar and famous actor.
And, finally, I’m ready to recommend this movie for viewing. It has everything to brighten the evening. A film for all ages. He definitely will draw attention.
I wish you pleasant viewing!
