Can you guess the movie?

Still stumped? Highlight for the answer: It's WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE? (1993)

Since no one has posted I'll take a wild guess. A Perfect World.

Field of Dreams?

Craig Bloomfield said...

Is it What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

JA said...

That's def. Gilbert Grape.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape is not only one of the best films of the 90's...I don't think DiCaprio will top it....rival the performance, maybe...but top it...noooooo...

WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE it is.
good job Craig.

arthurmcarthur -- yep, he's pretty great in it.

Craig Bloomfield said...

Ah, this is the first time ever I've guessed one of these correctly. I remembered there was a water tower in GG and took a guess!

Nicholas said...

I live in Iowa! My life isn't like Gilbert Grape though...I think that's a good thing.

NATHANIEL R said...

yep Craig, i figured this is a good one since boht the first and last images do figure into the story.

Timothy Marshall said...

Yay, I knew this one. It was the trailers at the end that I remembered...

Endora is like dancing to no music.

WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE for sure, damn it's already guessed!!!

It's the water tower and the motor homes that gave it away.

Flosh said...

ha! i thought it was Twister. Gilbert Grape is a much better choice.

Guy said...

Yep, the water tower is a dead giveaway.

God, I miss Juliette Lewis.

Finally I was able to just look at the pictures and say 'I know this one'. Great movie. Apart from DiCaprio I also loved Juliette Lewis there.
