Transfer of the DVDs and Blu-rays have always been a bit ropey, hopefully we have something new from Fabulous Films.
Unlikely, but at least it's a release of this classic. It's been treated criminally in the UK with Poundland DVDs from Prism. I think the OOP StudioCanal Blu-ray was a port of the same transfer used elsewhere as it had the exact same blemishes.
I have the Australia Blu-ray with the SE DVD US for these extras (also on the Japan Blu-ray):
Audio commentary with director and executive producer Lasse Hallström and writer Peter Hedges
"The Characters of Gilbert Grape" featurette (10:49)
"The Voice of Gilbert Grape" featurette (5:32)
"Why We Love Gilbert Grape" featurette (7:51)
Can't believe it's been almost 30 years since this was in cinemas.
Old UK release:
