About Benny and Joon
Mary Stuart Masterson is Joon Pearl, a pretty and bright young woman who is quick-witted, artistic...and unbalanced. She lives with her brother Benny, played by Aidan Quinn, who, in his desire to protect her from the world, may lose her forever. Into the lives of Benny and Joon comes Sam, winningly portrayed by Johnny Depp, Whimsical and beguiling, Sam possesses a love of classic and not so classic movies and an uncanny ability to recreate the magic of his idols Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. If Sam marches to a different drummer, it is Joon who can follow the beat, and these two true originals find each other.
