Benny & Joon

Benny & Joon (1993)

Plot summary

Benny (Aidan Quinn) is a mechanic who has been taking care of his mentally ill younger sister, Joon, since their parents died. This consumes his whole life, and gets in the way of a relationship he is pursuing with a pretty actress-turned-waitress, Ruthie (Julianne Moore). When Joon loses in a poker game, Benny is forced to take in his friend's eccentric cousin, Sam (Johnny Depp), a loner who loves movies, especially silent ones. Everything is going well, until Sam and Joon start a relationship, which Benny violently dissaproves of.
