“Some cultures are defined by their relationship to cheese.”
“Benny & Joon” quotes(1993)
Plot – Benny and Joon are brother and sister. Benny is a hard worker, perhaps a little apprehensive, but always ready to make sacrifice; his only vice is poker. Joon is a painter, rather extravagant, but fairly good and especially pretty. Sam, a real nutcase who is crazy for Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, shows up and comes between the two. It will be him, and especially his love, to save Joon from madness.
