According to Union Presbyterian Seminary student Star Crawford,  What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is a wonderful film that challenges us to take a look
at how we live our own lives. Are we truly living, or are we just coasting through life? Are we light and joy? Are we living with passion? Do we show compassion? The film shows us how to love others and ourselves and the power the lies in hope.
