The 1993 movie What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is set amongst the fictional working class one street town Endora. Gilbert, played by Johnny Depp, is the 24-year old breadwinner of the Grape family who dreams of escape. He struggles with the absence of a father figure, a depressed and morbidly obese widowed mother, low wage work, and supervision of his seventeen-year-old developmentally disabled brother, Arnie. Leonardo DiCaprio’s portrayal of Arnie earned him critical acclaim and his first Academy Award nomination. The all-star cast also includes Juliett Lewis, Mary Steenbergen, John C. Riley and Crispin Glover.

There will be an Afterglow in Insideout’s Outré Lounge following the movie at 9:00pm. During this time guests can peruse Insideout’s art gallery with its low-brow, outsider, pop surrealism and urban art pieces. The results of the silent auction will be announced during the Afterglow and the high-bidders can collect their items.
