No. 9 ~ Favorite Films of 1993

22 Jan

#9 – Benny & Joon


Johnny Depp was nominated for a Golden Globe for his astonishing performance as Sam in Benny & Joon, as the young waif outsider that falls in love with Mary Stuart-Masterson’s equally great perfomance of Joon, a mentally ill young woman. This film is one of my favorite early perfomances of Depp and is just a forerunner of what he was to become. Depp channels Chaplin, Keaton and Harry LLoyd perfectly. What seems at firts to be a comedy becomes a touching, intimate romance drama. If you are a Depp fan you will love this film as do I. The film also stars, Jullianne Moore and Aidan Quinn.
