Part Pinocchio, part Romeo and Juliet, director Tim Burton's labor of love introduces us to an artificial man with scissors for hands—and a penchant for sculpting. Raised by his father figure/inventor, Edward is left alone in a Gothic castle after his creator dies. When a nosy Avon lady comes calling, Edward is adopted into her family and learns what it truly means to live, love and be human.
After sniffling through Edward's fractured fairy-tale ending, you'll never look at the simple pleasures in life the same way again.
