PG-13 | | Drama
After his father's death, Gilbert has to care for his mentally-disabled brother, Arnie, and his morbidly obese mother. This situation is suddenly challenged though, when love unexpectedly walks into his life.
Director Lasse Hallström picked Johnny Depp to play Gilbert Grape, because of the way he can express so much emotion through his face and eyes.
Dad's dead! Dad's dead! Dad's dead! Dad's dead! Dad's dead! Dad's dead!
The amount of ice cream on Gilbert's face changes between shots.
