Synopsis

Life isn't easy for Gilbert Grape: with his mother housebound, it falls to Gilbert and his two sisters to look after their handicapped brother Arnie. As they try and make ends meet, Gilbert's job in a grocery store is threatened by the arrival of a huge "Food Land" supermarket in their small American town. But while the central storyline of What's Eating Gilbert Grape might sound depressing, the movie itself is fun throughout, with Johnny Depp playing Gilbert and a young Leonardo Di Caprio cast as the mischievous Arnie.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
