What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? (1993)(DVD) Directed by Lasse Hallström and starring Johnny Depp, Juliette Lewis and Leonardo DiCaprio, Mary Steenburgen and others. If you like Johnny Depp, you’ll like this; even if you don’t like Juliette Lewis (perhaps, aside from her performance in Natural Born Killers by Oliver Stone, starring Woody Harrelson), you’ll like this; if you like Leonardo DiCaprio, and frankly, even if you don’t, you’ll love this. DiCaprio, only 14 years old at the time of the release of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?, is, honestly, absolutely amazing. Roger Ebert of Chicago Sun-Times described [the film] as “… one of the most enchanting films of the year” and said that DiCaprio deserved to win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for which he was nominated. If you haven’t seen it already, it’s a must-see, and if you have seen it already, see it again, even if it’s just for DiCaprio’s stellar performance. (PR)
