See visionary director Tim Burton and hear about his new film, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” based on the best-selling novel and starring Eva Green as Miss Peregrine. The filmmaker and artist behind such highly imaginative, visually compelling films as “Edward Scissorhands,” “Corpse Bride,” “Batman Returns,” “Frankenweenie,” “Alice Through the Looking Glass” and “Big Eyes,” now gives us an exciting new movie in which a boy must figure out who is real, who can be trusted and who he really is, in a world where safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Interviewed by New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff.
