Synopsis: Famed director, Tim Burton’s, Christmas classic, Edward Scissorhands, is a gothic horror fantasy with a lot of heart. It is a beautiful story of learning to understand the true meaning of acceptance. Each character in the film represents society’s problems: hatred, bigotry, racism, political correctness, overzealous religious beliefs, immaturity, and selfishness. Edward, on the other hand, represents innocence and kindness. Taken in by the Boggs family, after his creator dies of a heart attack, the “unfinished” Edward, with scissors for hands, must learn the ways of the world, and discover how to live as a “human.”
