That's the question that kept rolling through my mind as I watched "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" unfold. There are monsters, people with unusual powers - including a young woman who is lighter than air and must wear lead boots to stay grounded - and disaffected parents who can't figure out just what's going on with their son. Miss Peregrine can stop time, there's a "loop" in time where the peculiar children can live safely (more or less) and... well, suffice it to say that there are a lot of strange goings-on in this Tim Burton film based on the best-selling story.
The plot revolves around the stories told to a young boy by his grandfather: Strange stories of peculiar children, evil monsters (that eat children's eyeballs) and female guardians that can turn into birds when the occasion calls for it. The boy's parents dismiss the old man's stories as just that - stories. It turns out, however, that they are true, as the boy - now a teen - finds himself transported in time - or maybe to another dimension - back to a certain day in 1943. What follows are some epic battles with monsters and a love story.
The movie features an all-star cast including Eva Green, Terence Stamp, Samuel L. Jackson, and Chris O'Dowd with Asa Butterfield as the teenager who just might be able to save the peculiar children. The special effects are - as you'd expect with a Tim Burton film - very well done as is the cinematography and costuming. The narrative, in my opinion, wanders a bit but I'm willing to admit my sense that it does is the result of the fact that - because I am not familiar with the story - I might have gotten lost here and there.
The verdict: A visual treat with some almost too-weird action sequences that will likely appeal to younger audiences more than to their parents.
