Tim Burton's bittersweet fantasy stars Johnny Depp as the unfortunate, unfinished creation of a scientist (Vincent Price in one of his last on-screen roles) who died leaving him with blades for hands. Taken in by Dianne Wiest's kindly Avon lady Peg, Edward tries to adapt to suburban life. But despite the support of Peg's sympathetic daughter (Winona Ryder), his strangeness makes it impossible to fit in. A touching and terrifically staged fairytale for adults.
