Starring Johnny Depp, Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson, Benny & Joon tells the story of Benny who cares for his mentally disturbed sister, Joon, and who also welcomes the eccentric Sam into his home at Joon's request. Sam entertains Joon while he dreams of a job at the video store. Once Benny realizes Joon and Sam have started a relationship, he kicks Sam out of the house.
