What's Eating Gilbert Grape

What's Eating Gilbert Grape ★★★★


Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio are excellent in this very dour film. Everyone feels like they’re stuck in a crappy situation now and then. However, what I liked about the film is how it points out that the answer isn’t always to just leave. You can’t because sometimes the cards you’re dealt are the cards you’ll play with. I enjoyed the film in how it explored some of these themes. I do recommend because it’s a very compelling drama. Also one thing I noticed is that this is one of those films where any scene with food is always really gross. The obnoxious lick sound effects and other things. Made me want to vomit multiple times. Probably intentional with the mother being morbidly obese and all.
