What’s Eating Gilbert Grape

One of my new favorite movies.  Awesome!  A young Johnny Depp, young Leonardo DiCaprio and Julliete Lewis and Mary Steenburgen.  I have never been a big fan of DiCaprio, but gilbert_grapenow I am.  His acting here is absolutely incredible, and Depp is awesome as always.  These two are both young and deliver performances of far more experienced actors.  Not only that, but the story is fantastic.  A bit slow at times, but like a crock-pot, the final product is spectacular in the end.  The ending is incredibly satisfying, though upredictable.  How have I missed this movie since 1993?

Definitely recommended.  It takes some engagement to stay with the story, but well worth the effort.
