Miss Pere­grine’s Home for Pe­cu­liar Chil­dren

TV Times - - Friday Highlights - film / 8.00pm / Sky Cinema Pre­miere

a re­turn to form for di­rec­tor Tim Bur­ton, this mad­cap fan­tasy stars Asa But­ter­field as a timid kid touch­ing down in a world where time is frozen, chil­dren have strange pow­ers and the for­mi­da­ble Miss Pere­grine (Eva Green) rules the roost. Punchy, quirky and smart, it’s a Harry Pot­ter-style comin­gof-age story with lash­ings of spe­cial ef­fects, plenty of ec­cen­tric ac­tion and a great cast in­clud­ing Sa­muel L Jack­son, Judi Dench, Ter­ence Stamp and Chris O’dowd. And there’s even a Black­pool fi­nale set to pump­ing dance mu­sic. Mag­i­cal.

These are no or­di­nary kids…
