Benny and Joon
Jeremiah S. Chechik
Another modern-day classic, this film is about two unusual individuals falling in love. Starring Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson, this 1993 movie is well known for the silent comedy routines by Johnny Depp which is similar to Buster Keaton's and Charlie Chaplin's. Aidan Quinn, who appears as Joon's brother Benny, delivers a subtle yet powerful performance. The background score by Rachel Portman is as unique as the storyline.
