What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

I didn’t know until after I’d moved to Manor, Texas that Johnny Depp had worked in the run-down grocery store on the corner, just across the street from that old water tower from which he had to talk Leonardo DiCaprio down so many times.

I just had to re-watch What’s Eating Gilbert Grape to catch all the old footage. The roads aren’t dirt anymore. There’s a chain-link fence around the tower now.


Did you know Manor PD has a neon POLICE sign on their building? Looks like an OPEN sign for a convenient store.
