  • Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy


From the breathtaking stop-action animation to bitter-sweet modern fairy tales, filmmaker Tim Burton has become known for his unique visual brilliance--witty and macabre at once. Now, he gives birth to a cast of gruesomely sympathetic children--misunderstood outcasts who struggle to find love and belonging in their cruel, cruel worlds. His lovingly lurid illustrations evoke both the sweetness and tragedy of these dark yet simple beings--hopeful, hapless heroes who appeal to the ugly outsider in all of us, and let us laugh at the world we have long left behind (mostly, anyway).
