  What's Eating Gilbert Grape is sometimes hard to watch, but well worth it. There are some difficult scenes dealing with hard-hearted outsiders teasing the Grape family, and some scary ones when Gilbert loses his temper with Arnie. But there are also moments of beauty and compassion, and an offbeat sense of humor throughout.4/5. Gilbert Grape is a twenty-four-year-old grocery store clerk stuck in Endora, Iowa, where the population is 1, and shrinking. After the suicide of Gilbert's father, his family never fully recovered. Once the town beauty queen, Gilbert's mother is now morbidly obese and planted eternally in front of the TV; his younger sister has recently.

What's eating Gilbert Grape is just about everything and everybody--his mothere, who has been eating herself to death since his father's suicide; his Elvis-fanatic sister who is following her example; his little sister Ellen, the town beauty; and his brother Armie, the town retard. A heartwarming, exhilarating debut novel by a very gifted young writer/5(27). In "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," Gilbert (Johnny Depp) displays the extreme boredom of life one can find living in a post high school world in the rural Midwest.
