Film School – Edward Scissorhands (1990) on 35mm Film

Edward Scissorhands The story of Edward Scissorhands: A modern-day fairy tale directed by Tim Burton.

In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor’s greatest creation – Edward (Johnny Depp), a near-complete person. The inventor (Vincent Price) died before he could finish Edward’s hands; instead, Edward is left with metal scissors for hands. Since then, he has lived alone, until a kind lady called Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers him and welcomes him into her home. At first, everyone welcomes Edward into the community. Edward becomes friends with Peg’s young son Kevin (Robert Oliveri) and her husband Bill (Alan Arkin). He later falls in love with the Boggs’ beautiful teenage daughter, Kim (Winona Ryder), despite her initial fear of him. However not everyone in the neighbourhood is impressed, and soon things begin to take a change for the worse.
