Gilbert Grape feels trapped - with no father present and an eccentric family to care for, he is struggling to cope. His extremely overweight mother cannot leave the house and his developmentally challenged younger brother Alfie is running riot with his stubborn antics. As much as Gilbert adores Alfie and shares a unique fatherly bond, he can be difficult to care for.
The only way Gilbert can escape from the confines of his demanding role as head of the house is to run into the arms of an older married woman, whom he is having a secret affair - but the relationship is struggling as his mind is always elsewhere. With their home falling apart at the very seams and Gilbert struggling to cope with all the demands his life puts upon him, can the enigmatic new girl in town rescue Gilbert Grape and bring some happiness back in to his life?
Brilliantly directed by Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), this quirky, whimsical and touching drama stars heartthrobs Johnny Depp (Edward Scissorhands, Pirates of the Carribean) and Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street, The Great Gatsby) in one of their best loved roles, with DiCaprio receiving a best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for a film that made him a star.
