Absolutely love this film. You watch this and wonder why Leonardo DiCaprio has only just won his first Oscar! His portrayal of Arnie is nothing short of genius!

Very good movie with even better acting performances. Dicaprio plays a mentally challenged boy to perfection. Johnny Depp lets his eyes speak his emotion. Great story of struggle and responsibilities of family, and the balance for personal freedom.
