Time Out says

Hallström's finally struck a chord with the Americans, though it's much the same cocktail of whimsy and worry, the eccentric and the banal, that he's been mixing all along. The frustrated Gilbert (Depp) lives at home in Endora, Iowa, with his two younger sisters, his mentally disabled brother Arnie (DiCaprio), and his sofa-crushing 600lb mother (Cates). Deep in a Midwestern rut, Gilbert holds down a job at the local store, maintains a bored affair with housewife Betty Carver (Steenburgen), and tries to keep Arnie out of trouble, but his patience is running out - it's only when he meets teen traveller Becky (Lewis) that he can really take stock. Cute adolescent poetry with a sentimental kick.

Gilbert Grape is the one movie i have watched that can truly pull on thos hearstrings and give a giggle, aswell as actually being an exceptionally good movie. Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio play there parts amazingly and the two characters are portrayed fantastically. A truly magical movie, everyone should see.
