Edward Scissorhands

This Tim Burton classic is a devastating look at what it is like being different in American suburbia. While it is an extreme and unrealistic situation, one can still relate to Johnny Depp's character, Edward, as he struggles to fit in. Winona Ryder plays the love interest. A girl who seemingly has everything going for her, Ryder finds a friendship in Edward that she was not expecting. Though a completely heartbreaking love story, Edward Scissorhands is a unique classic that is not to be missed.

i agree. it is a story of someone taken out of their context to conform with another society. Trying so hard to fit in, Edward finally realizes that it is not his place and must go back to where he came from. The town was not ready for him. it can be a deep thought if you actually go into it. something many people can relate to. It all comes down to being yourself and not letting anyone else tell you different.
