The first collaboration between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, this magical modern fairy tale has gothic overtones and a sweet centre which will surely enchant you, this Halloween.

An inventor (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being - the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). But before he can finish assembling Edward, The Inventor tragically passes away.

Leaving the shy young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban Avon Lady Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg's teen daughter Kim (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward's hands make him an outcast.

Burton's modern fairytale has an almost palpable personal feel: it is told gently, subtly and with infinite sympathy for an outsider who charms the locals but then inadvertently arouses their baser instincts.
