Spoiler alert: what’s eating 24-year-old Gilbert (Johnny Depp) is looking after his small-town Iowan family and their house since his father’s suicide. There’s his overweight, house-bound momma (Darlene Cates) and his autistic, water-tower-climbing younger brother (Leo, in the role that got him his first Oscar nom). But when Juliette Lewis’s RV breaks down in town, romance – and a life beyond the burden of familial responsibility – beckons.
