A Truly Remarkable Film
This film is marvelous.
Focusing on the angst of an unwanted small-town life, the film follows
the daily life of Johnny Depp's Gilbert Grape. He is sarcastic yet
introverted, protective yet shy.
His mentally-challenged brother, Leonardo Dicaprio's Arnie, steals the
heart and full attention of the audience. His depiction of a teenager
trapped in the inescapable bind of mental retardation is moving and
real, deserving of the 1993 Oscar Award Nomination.
Darlene Cates, who plays Momma, delivers a truly remarkable
performance. Her display of motherly devotion, emotional turmoil and
daily physical struggle are deserving of grand recognition.
Gilbert's life is turned around by the unexpected introduction of
Juliette Lewis's Becky. Becky's free-spirited and optimistic take on
life greatly influence's Gilbert's own life.
WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE is deeply tragic yet deeply real tale of a
complicated family stuck in a simple town. The performances of Johnny
Depp, Leonardo Dicaprio, Darlene Cates and Juliette Lewis are unmatched
and truly wonderful. It is a film woven together with comedy, drama,
love and everyday emotion, perfected with beautiful cinematography and
