A delightful work of art well told.


Despite Forrest’s (Tom Hanks) low IQ, he’s no ordinary guy. Learning early on from his mother (Sally Field) that “life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get”, Gump, without trying, stumbles upon some exciting events. Meanwhile, as the remarkable parade of his life unfolds, Forrest never forgets Jenny (Robin Wright), the girl he loved as a child, who is on her own journey through the turbulent 1960s and 1970 far more troubled than the Forrest path falls on.
