My Life As A Grape

What's Eating Gilbert Grape -- growing up eccentric in a small Iowa town

There are a few other problems. Becky is rather generically life-affirming, and the movie drags a bit at the end. But its strengths more than compensate, especially DiCaprio's performance as Arnie. This young actor made a name for himself as the young Tobias Wolff character in This Boy's Life, but he's so good here that I simply didn't recognize him, and that's not because of makeup or any special effects. He is so convincing that I can only pay him the ultimate compliment by saying that when the credits rolled, I was surprised to find an actor's name associated with Arnie. I thought he was real.
