Edward Scissorhands

We are studying gothic writing.  Please watch the first 15 minutes of Edward Scissorhands to think about how gothic ideas have been used.  It’s particularly good because the gothic contrasts effectively with the other society presented in the film.

You can watch the first 15 mins: on DVD if you or someone you know has it; on You Tube, although you might have to search a bit for it; possibly on Netflix.  If all else fails, you will easily access the trailer for the film (which isn’t 15 mins but it creates an appropriate atmosphere) on You Tube.  You do not need to make notes as this is for discussion during one of Friday’s lessons.  I just want you to have things in your mind’s eye.
