Edward Scissorhands

Lists: Drama, Fantasy, Biopic, Dark Fantasy, Romance, Robotics

Brief Synopsis: "Edward Scissorhands is a classic Tim Burton and Johnny Depp film about a small suburban town that receives a visit from a castaway unfinished science experiment named Edward. A satire on the normality of Middle-America and their fear of outsiders. A magical fairytale story of loneliness, learning, and love; that will make you laugh, curse, and cry."
