Product Description

Gilbert Grape (Johnny Depp) lives in Endora, a place where nothing much happens. The only times the police got something to do is when Gilbert's autistic brother Arnie (Leonardo DiCaprio) tries to climb up on the watertower nearby. Taking care of Arnie is mostly Gilbert's task which can be pretty demanding, at least while you are working at the local grocery store. Then one day Becky (Juliette Lewis) and her grandmother passes through Endora getting trouble with the car. Gilbert falls in love with Becky, but gets problems when he tries to find time for his own private life.

  1.  I would call it Johnny Depp's best movie 5 July, 2014 On Junglee.com
    A very simple and heart touching movie. The movie is set in a small village Eldora which is still reaping the old culture and people are still striving to live in a village way.
    Gilbert being an eldest son in the family takes care of his obese mother and younger brother who is mentally challenged.
    The movie revolves around simple hopes and dreams, the simple ways in which the younger brother Arnie sees the life.
    Arnie is waiting for his 18th birthday desperately. The story doesn't have many twists and turns. It is more of an art movie rather than an entertainer.
    I loved watching this movie and I am huge fan of Johnny now and also appreciate the role played by De caprio as retard younger brother of Gilbert.
