Edward Scissorhands

Guest Author - Rain Battle

As a Tim Burton film, Edward Scissorhands is a beautiful film to watch. It's filled with amazing special effects, intricately detailed costumes, and a diabolical sense of whimsy. In a neighborhood full of cookie-cutter houses in a city like a million other cities, Peg, an Avon lady knocks on the door of a neighbor who will change the lives of everyone she knows. Behind the door of a crumbling estate once lived a brilliant scientist. Before he died, he created a man with scissors for hands. This is who Peg (Dianne Wiest) meets when she knocks at the door of the old mansion.

Edward has lived there alone since his creator died, terrified of the world and the people outside. Peg manages to convince Edward to leave and go home with her so that she can take care of him. Soon her family and neighbors meet Edward and all are fascinated with his unique trait. Although he is often overwhelmed by the attention, Edward only has eyes for Peg's daughter Kim (Winona Ryder). Edward is a novelty and everyone loves him - or at least they love what he can do for them. He trims hedges, cuts hair, and acts as a sounding board for the neighborhood's problems.

It all begins to spiral out of control when Kim's jerky boyfriend, Jim (Anthony Michael Hall), tricks Edward into committing a crime. Jim is jealous of Kim's budding feelings for Edward and he does his best to run Edward out of town. Soon, a series of mishaps turn all of Edward's new friends against him and their mob mentality even escalates into causing someone's death.

"Edward Scissorhands" was an enormous success upon it's release and still tops my favorites list. Johnny Depp was poignantly perfect as Edward and Winona Ryder was delicately protective as his true love. Dianne Wiest, another favorite actress of mine, nailed the motherly concern Peg had for Edward. This film is fun to watch and a great example of how love can surpass even the oddest differences.
