PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A frustrated son tries to determine the fact from fiction in his dying father's life.
When Norther Winslow shows his half finished poem to Edward (Grass so green/Skies so blue/Spectre is really great!), the handwriting is director Tim Burton's.
Young Ed Bloom:
There are some fish that cannot be caught. It's not that they are faster or stronger than other fish, they're just touched by something extra.
When Edward Bloom infiltrates the "North Korean" concert there are multiple languages being spoken (not just Korean). These languages include Mandarin, Cantonese, and Tagalog. In addition, the translation book Edward reads on the plane in simply entitled "English to Asian". This is done deliberately in order to obfuscate a reference to any country/war in which Ed might have been. Ed is old enough to be a veteran of WWII, but he is fighting the Chinese, who would have been allied with the US at the time. This is simply to let the audience know that the war is not WWII nor any specific war but is symbolic of all wars.
