What's Eating Gilbert Grape ★★★

Weirdly had never seen this. There’s a surprising amount of depth beyond the Depp/DiCaprio characters that gives the world a lot of life. The town itself really is a compelling character but gets sort of lost by the wayside of the back half of the movie.

Both more interesting than and very much a rehash of the “I just gotta get out of this town” archetype.
