" Note : Before Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio did this small movie. What a perfomance ! Until now, it is his best one. Johnny Depp, as usual, is very good. The story is moving and the directing is great aswell. Finally, it is a realistic movie about the loving but also difficult relationships in a familly when someone has a handicap. A great masterpiece. For more info : Top 10 best movies 1993"

"Gilbert Grape is a small-town young man with a lot of responsibility. Chief among his concerns are his mother, who is so overweight that she can’t leave the house, and his mentally impaired younger brother, Arnie, who has a knack for finding trouble. Settled into a job at a grocery store and an ongoing affair with local woman Betty Carver, Gilbert finally has his life shaken up by the free-spirited Becky. This highly rated movie is interesting in its own peculiar way in the first 45 min or so"
