Based on Ransom Riggs' novel of the same name, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a dark, gripping fantasy adventure that gives you a glimpse into another world - in another time. The stylish adaption of the book is directed by Tim Burton, and won the Into Film Award for Children's Film of the Year.
Jake's grandfather has told him stories of monsters and 'Peculiar' children for years, which he eventually stops believing in. But when Jake's grandfather dies, leaving him with mysterious clues and insisting he goes to "the loop of September 3, 1943", Jake must find the island where these children live and find out the truth.
Jake goes to the island of Cairnholm only to discover that the children's home was hit with a bomb in World War II and it's destroyed. He decides to explore it anyway, hoping for answers, only to find that the children that his grandfather told him about are inside! They take him into a cave to access "the loop" and they step out into 1943.
Here Jake meets the rest of the 'peculiars', and Miss Peregrine herself - a type of Peculiar called a Ymbryne that can manipulate time, and change into a peregrine at will. She created a time loop to keep herself and the children she cares for safe from harm, and together they live September 3rd, 1943 over and over again.
At first, life in the time loop seems great, and Jake loves hanging out with the Peculiars - until he has to make a decision that'll change his life forever in order to protect the Peculiars and keep them safe from the horrifying monsters out to get them.
