What's Eating Gilbert Grape | Film Suggestion

By Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Released in 1993 and directed by Lasse Hallstrom, this film titled What's Eating Gilbert Grape is a very deep and emotional film. For those of you into the emotional, drama romance genre, you'll take a liking to this film. The movie features a young Johnny Deep and an even younger Leonardo DiCaprio so the acting is flawless, specifically by DiCaprio as he plays a mentally disabled little boy. The story line typically follows the responsibility of the protagonist Gilbert, surrounding his very obese mother who cant even manage to the leave the house and his impaired younger brother who finds himself getting into all sorts of trouble. Along the way the audience also sees his romantic development with another character. The film has moments of intense emotion and I think that's what makes it an amazing movie and a film that lets just say, should have got DiCaprio an Oscar (haha). I would highly recommend that if you haven't seen the film you definitely go and watch it! If you have seen it before, comment below what you thought of it :)
