Johnny Depp is astonishing in his Golden Globe-nominated performance as a soft-spoken eccentric who begins an adorable romance with a shy, withdrawn young woman. Aidan Quinn plays Benny, a small-town auto mechanic and brother to Joon, played by Mary Stuart Masterson, his mentally ill sister. As Sam, Depp may not have a way with words, but he's got a gift for physical comedy, uncannily re-creating Chaplin and Keaton's best slapstick routines. Aidan envies Depp and Masterson's courtship as he confronts hisreluctance in pursuing matters of his own heart. "Benny and Joon" (1993) is a beautifully acted concoction of unlikely love and friendships.
