Many people have enjoyed and laughed along the queer and strange tale of Edward Scissorhands Yet as amusing as it is the story is just not a movie to make people laugh at the absurdities of the characters It is more of a commentary which portrays how we isolate people just because they are different Yes we many deny this kind of behaviour in this world But it is real- for example- Bullying Picture this A man with scissors for hands He has scars all over his ghostly white face His body has a skin of hard black material His hair is wild Is he a freak To tell you the truth I think he is just because of his appearance But the movie makes the same scene He is isolated because people only judge him of his appearance and they treat as a freak Edward Scissorhands also exposes the fear of people to new cultures races social groups and the isolated people simple because they are different to normal people For example in one scene where Edward eats with the family the whole family is staring or just feeling awkward They are acting like that not just because he is a stranger who is eating with them but he is so different to the family -especially his hands The film also expresses the need to not just judge people by their looks but saying that if you go further into their heart you would find gold So it joins the beauty is not on the outside but in the outside debate It is basically valuing not just beauty but the beauty of your soul An issue brought up in the film is also segregation in the community with different groups It is almost like the olden days in United States where segregation between blacks and whites was common Even though it does not show racial tension it can be noticed
