Plot Outline:

Gilbert Grape 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 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 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

Why did DiCaprio not win a Oscar.

The film is one of the most underrated movies. A great mix of comedy and drama, with funny characters. In my opinion the best acting of DiCaprio, who plays a mentally handicapped boy.

This is a smalltown drama populated by odd characters. DiCapriio displays early acting chops as Depp's mentally handicapped brother and the relationship that they share on-screen is the true heart and most successful element of this film.

I saw this movie when I was younger, and the after-thoughts still haunt me. Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp made a wonderful pair in this film about the tragedies of circumstance. A story of the truth of shame and redemption, I would recommend this film to anyone with a heart strong enough to withstand its message.

What I am about to say is very daring but I mean it with all of my heart and soul. Leonardo DiCaprio gives one of the best performances in the HISTORY of cinema. He is in a class all by himself. The story is incredible. When the movie started I was captivated. When the movie ended I was still captivated. This movie didn't leave me not one time. It stayed at a good pace and kept me interested. Truely, a movie masterpiece with a performance that is going down as one of the best ever.
