MOVIE REVIEW: WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE
This movie takes us into the suburbs of the Midwestern United States, to a small town called Endora. Which according to Gilbert Grape (Johnny Depp) the star and narrator of the movie is a lifeless town and as he narrates the story about his family he tells us all about the town in one eminent sentence which is “living in Endora is like dancing to no music”. The director Lesse Hallstrom has done a magnificent job in portraying the screenplay by novelist-screenwriter Peter Hedges also named as What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. The central idea of the movie revolves around Gilbert’s adoring and motherly relationship with his retarded brother Arnie (Leonardo DiCaprio).
As the movie goes along we get to know a few more characters, and the most important is Momma (Darlene Cates) a 500-pound lady who hasn’t left the house since her husband’s suicide and pretty much dominates the house of the Grape family. In absence of Momma from her duties, Amy (Laura Harrington) Gilbert’s older sister is acting as a substitute mother of the house. The younger sister Ellen (Marry Kate) is rather a selfless and rude teenager. There are two other ladies related to Gilbert, one is an unhappy housewife who wants Gilbert to fulfill her sexual desires, Betty Carver (Marry Steenburgen) plays this role very well. The other lady is a young teenager Becky (Juliette Lewis) who is also referred as free soul by some other review writers.
Gilbert who is our lead character has a strong relationship with Arnie. Which in other words can also be defined as mother and son relationship. Gilbert is very much concern about him, and always takes care of Arnie and most of the time as seen in the movie they are together, even when Gilbert is with his girlfriends.
The scene when Arnie climbs up the water tank and the way Gilbert sings and convinces Arnie to get down is very touching and gives us the idea…
