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, Edward is left with metal scissors for hands.

At first, everyone welcomes Edward into the community, but soon things begin to take a change for the worse.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Variety

    A delightful and delicate comic fable.

  • 80

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    Like a great chef concocting an exquisite peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich, Mr. Burton invests awe-inspiring ingenuity into the process of reinventing something very small.

  • 50

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The disappointment is that Burton has not yet found the storytelling and character-building strength to go along with his pictorial flair.
