A vis­ual feast about mag­i­cal young­sters

Tim Bur­ton gets to show off his idio­syn­cratic imag­i­na­tion once more with this fan­tasy yarn. The plot takes its time to get go­ing be­fore teenager Asa But­ter­field gets to the or­phan­age of the ti­tle, yet when it does, its ec­cen­tric­i­ties prove ir­re­sistible. Eva Green is typ­i­cally en­chant­ing as the shape-shift­ing

Miss Pere­grine and her mag­i­cally gifted young charges (in­clud­ing Lau­ren Mc­crostie) are equally eye-catch­ing. Sa­muel L Jack­son chews the scenery

as the vil­lain. Dir: Tim Bur­ton 2016, 12, 130min

Ready for any­thing: But­ter­field, Green and Mc­crostie
