Set in a 19th century European village, this stop-motion animated Tim Burton-directed dark romantic comedy tells the story of shy Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp) who, thinking himself alone, practices his marriage vows not knowing he’s in the presence of a deceased young woman (voiced by Helena Bonham Carter). She rises from the grave assuming he has married her, and he’s whisked away to the underworld while his living bridge-to-be (voice by Emily Watson) languishes, bereft.

Won many awards; nominated for an Oscar bur didn’t win.
