A universal coming-of-age story about an isolated young man’s pursuit of his dreams, the film is an exploration of love, artistic ambition, sacrifice and the moments of discovery that allow us to see the truth about ourselves, and our parents, with clarity and compassion.

This Valentine’s Day delve into Tim Burton's modern day fairy tale staring Johnny Depp as the unfortunate, unfinished creation of a scientist (Vincent Price in one of his last on-screen roles) who died leaving him with blades for hands.
