Benny & Joon ()

directed by
featuring Johnny Depp, Mary Stuart Masterson, Aidan Quinn, Julianne Moore, Oliver Platt

Johnny Depp was nominated for a Golden Globe for his astonishing performance in Benny & Joon, though the entire cast is equally impressive. Benny (Aidan Quinn) runs a small car repair shop. He must also take care of his mentally ill sister Juniper, better known as Joon (Mary Stuart Masterson). After losing a bet, Benny is forced to bring another eccentric into his house: Sam (Johnny Depp), the cousin of a friend. Not inclined to conversation, Sam expresses himself by performing Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton routines (and brilliantly!) Not surprisingly, he immediately hits it off with Joon. As Sam and Joon fall deeper in love, Benny for the first time in life experiences the pangs of jealousy. As can be gathered by this synopsis, Benny and Joon may not strike responsive chord with everyone; those who like the film, however, are almost militant in their devotion. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

Refreshing film for all ages...

by Ciera on Jan 2, 2009

Benny and Joon is a strange twist on a good love story. Benny takes care of his beloved sister Joon, who is also mentally ill. Benny loses a bet against his friend and has to take in his cousin Sam. Sam is very peculiar and at first Joon can't stand him. But they soon fall for each other..which creates a new set of problems. Benny and Joon is a movie with many quirks. It is a heartwarming story and it is easy to watch as the characters grow and develop along the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone.
