Gothic love story from director Tim Burton. When Avon lady Peg Boggs (Dianne Wiest) pays a visit to the local castle, she discovers Edward (Johnny Depp) - a half-finished, mechanical man with scissors for hands. She takes him home to her suburban neighbourhood where his exotic appeal and prodigious topiary skills make him a celebrity. However, prejudice against the unfamiliar soon takes its toll on the shy misfit. The cast also includes Winona Ryder, Kathy Baker and Conchata Ferrell.
