What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

In Swedish director Lasse Hallstrom's family drama:

  • the heartbreaking scene of brain-damaged brother Arnie Grape (Leonardo DiCaprio), a day after his 18th birthday, discovering his dead, morbidly obese mother Bonnie (Darlene Cates) in her upstairs bedroom ("Momma, stop it now")
  • his decision with his brother Gilbert Grape (Johnny Depp) to empty the house and set fire to it, to avoid having her removed by a crane - which would cause a crowd and make them a joke in the town
