The infamous story of Benjamin Barker, AKA Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop down in London which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett. Based on the hit Broadway musical.
Helena Bonham Carter,
In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor's greatest creation - Edward, a near-complete person. The creator died before he could finish Edward's hands; instead, he is left with metal scissors for hands. Since then, he has lived alone, until a kind lady called Peg discovers him and welcomes him into her home. At first, everyone welcomes him into the community, but soon things begin to take a change for the worse. Written by
Tim Burton had asked Robert Smith of The Cure to do the soundtrack and had even sent the script. Robert was busy recording 'Disintegration' at the time, and didn't know who Burton was, so passed up the opportunity, handing Danny Elfman the job. See more »
When all the dogs are waiting in line to be groomed, Edward has Joyce's dog sitting on a single, long table; the only table visible before Joyce's dog is groomed. When Edward begins to groom Joyce's dog, a small, square table can be seen next to the table that Joyce's dog is supposedly sitting on. The longer table disappears. After Joyce's dog is groomed, the smaller table disappears, replaced with the longer table that Joyce's dog was originally sitting on. See more »

This is a beautiful movie, and most people I know have never seen it. If you haven't, Make sure to see it! The ending is really sad and beautiful, and it leaves you with a happy/sad feeling. Also, the music just grabs you. There is a boy's choir that sings throughout the movie, and they just capture the emotion you are trying to let out, but don't know how. You should really see it, if you've never have. The movie 'Simon Birch' reminds me a bit of this 'Edward'. This is the perfect casting. Johnny Depp just seems so innocent, and untouched, and Winona Ryder is a snobby little girl who learns to look beyond a handsome face. I've never seen such a heartwarming movie- I don't think I ever will.
