Directed by
Tim Burton

Tim Burton's dark fantasy stars Johnny Depp in the title role, a humanoid construct made by The Inventor but whose hands - long, sharp blades - are left unfinished following his creator's death.

Discovered alone in his Gothic castle by Avon lady Peg Boggs, he is taken home to her suburban family, husband Bill, daughter Kim and son Kevin. Edward soon becomes a social hit; thanks to his hands, he is in demand for exotic dog styling, hair dos and hedge clipping. But Kim's boyfriend plays a cruel trick on him which turns the neighbourhood against him. With Edward now an outcast, hunted by a baying mob of suburbanites, only Kim can help him return to his true home.
