In­door Sum­mer Gar­den Cin­ema: Ed­ward Scis­sorhands

A cult clas­sic that her­alded an era of ‘90s gothic as an aes­thetic lifestyle and turned Johnny Depp from teenage heart­throb into a hero for alt-heads ev­ery­where, Tim Bur­ton’s 1990 hit “tells the bizarre story of a boy with scis­sors for hands who is taken in by a nice sub­ur­ban fam­ily, falls in love with their daugh­ter (the one and only Wi­nona Ry­der), and shows his true tal­ent for trim­ming hedges and cut­ting hair.
