Aro Favourite What's Eating Gilbert Grape?


USA 1993, 113 minutes
Dir. Lasse Hallstrom
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama / Independent, Youth

Topics: Educational Resource.


Aroview: An off-beat delight that's quirky take on tin-pot America is never at the expense of its truthfulness or poignancy.

The ballad of the dysfunctional Grape family is beautifully evoked, with Johnny Depp and Juliette Lewis allowing plenty of room for Leonardo DiCaprio to do what is probably the best piece of adolescent method-acting ever. A gem.
