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

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.
