Whats Eating Gilbert Grape by Peter HedgesJust about everything in Endora, Iowa (pop. 1,091 and dwindling) is eating Gilbert Grape, a twenty-four-year-old grocery clerk who dreams only of leaving. His enormous mother, once the town sweetheart, has been eating nonstop ever since her husbands suicide, and the floor beneath her TV chair is threatening to cave in. Gilberts long-suffering older sister, Amy, still mourns the death of Elvis, and his knockout younger sister has become hooked on makeup, boys, and Jesus--in that order, but the biggest event on the horizon for all the Grapes is the eighteenth birthday of Gilberts younger brother, Arnie, who is a living miracle just for having survived so long. As the Grapes gather in Endora, a mysterious beauty glides through town on a bicycle and rides circles around Gilbert, until he begins to see a new vision of his family and himself.

His days consist of working in the struggling food mart in order to feed his mother's large appetite and taking care of his mentally handicapped brother.

The story line is quietly captivating and you become swiftly invested in poor Gilbert's well being and in his siblings' well being too. But story line aside, to me the truly amazing thing about this movie is Leonardo DiCaprio's performance as Gilbert's mentally handicapped brother Arnie. Truly one of DiCaprio's best performances.
