Being stuck in a hotel room watching What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is Gilbert’s starting point, as he trails off on various tangents about parental divorce, finding love, having a baby and the trials of growing up in a fictional town. Surreal, rambling and very funny, by his own admission he doesn’t do comedy, he does misery; if this is true let’s hope he doesn’t find true happiness.
