Edward (Johnny Depp) lives a lonely existence in a large gothic mansion atop a hill.  He inherited the home from an ingenious inventor (Vincent Price), and Edward was the owner's invention.  When Edward's inventor died unexpectedly, he had not yet completed his creation's hands, replacingthem with scissors instead.

Peg Boggs (Dianne Wiest) meets Edward while selling cosmetics door-to-door and sympathizes with his plight.  She invites him to meet her family, and his knack for cutting hair and hedges garners Edward neighborhood fame.  For once Edward feels happiness, but two individuals' jealousy will soon bring him despair.  

Edward Scissorhands earned $86 million at the box office, more than quadruple its production cost of $20 million.  The picture was nominated for an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy Award.
