Edward Scissorhands – Practice Essay Introduction

Here is my practice introduction for the essay topic:

Describe an important theme in Edward Scissorhands. Explain how visual and verbal techniques helped you to understand this theme.

An important theme within the film ‘Edward Scissorhands’, directed by Tim Burton, is ‘to never judge someone by appearances alone.’ Many of the main events within the film are centered around this theme. There are several visual and verbal techniques used within the film that help the audience to understand the theme; costuming, lighting, and music all play a big part. All of these aspects of the film are relatable with the audience, and leave them with a moral that they can take away and use in everyday life.
