Synopsis

Gilbert Grape lives in Endora, a place where nothing much happens. The only time the police have something to do is when Gilbert's autistic brother Arnie tries to climb up on the water tower nearby. Taking care of Arnie is mostly Gilbert's task which can be pretty demanding, at least while you are working at the local grocery store. Then one day Becky arrives in Endora and captures Gilbert's heart.
