A modern day fairy tale which tells the story of Edward (Johnny Depp), a man created by an inventor who died before finishing him and left Edward with scissors where he should have hands. One day the local Avon lady checks around the old house and meets Edward. She takes him home and introduces Edward to the pastel world of the town called Suburbia. Edward gains fame around the town by cutting hedges and giving the neighbors and their dogs unusual haircuts. Edward falls in love with a girl named Kim and learns about heartbreak and learns what it's really like to be different from everyone else.
This is Tim Burton's most personal film and one of his best. Danny Elfman has also created a beautiful soundtrack. It also starred Vincent Price as the Inventor, his last film role.
