Edward Scissorhands

Play Trailer

Once upon a time, a gentle, lonely man with scissors for hands was welcomed into a sunny, pastel-hued suburbia. Later though, that same community started to turn on him...With its themes of loneliness and isolation, its gothic imagery, and an exquisite, evocative score from Danny Elfman, Edward Scissorhands is the archetypal Tim Burton movie. Arguably, it’s also his best—a beautiful, yet heartbreaking fairytale, where too few people live happily ever after.
