Danny Elfman: Edward Scissorhands
Director: Tim Burton
Cast: Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Vincent Price
The film: Johnny Depp plays an uncommonly gentle young man, who happens to have scissors for hands, falls in love with a beautiful girl in middle class suburbia.
The score: Edward Scissorhands is the fourth feature film collaboration between director Tim Burton and composer Danny Elfman. Elfman has cited this as his most personal and favorite work. It's certainly the most haunting and magical. In addition to Elfman's music, three Tom Jones songs also appear.
