From Back Cover:

Johnny Depp plays Gilbert and Juliette Lewis is the girl who turns his life around in this flawless blend of comedy and drama that includes Leonardo DiCaprio's stunning, Oscar-nominated performance as Gilbert's mentally impaired younger brother. Newcomer Darlene Cates (as Momma) and Mary Steenburgen (as a house-wife who wants Gilbert all to herself) co-star in "one of the most real, honest and unusual pictures of the year" (Bill Diehl, ABC RadioNetwork).

My Comments:

There's not a whole lot that needs to be said for this film. It stars two out of four of what I consider to be the best actors of our time (Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio) and features a funny and heartfelt script, based on the novel of the same name.
