Forrest Gump Poster

Rating: PG-13 Year: 1994 Category: Drama Romance Comedy
Director: Robert Zemeckis Time: 142 min. Writer: Winston Groom & Eric Roth

Mine: Love this movie. I can watch it over and over again. I can relate to Forrest, going through life kind of confused, but plodding along. 'Some times there are just not enough rocks".
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A slow-witted boy grows to adulthood, floating through life--like a feather--with only a vague understanding of the tumultuous times he's living through. (He manages to be on hand for virtually every socio-pop-political phenomenon of the formative Baby Boomer decades, from the rise of Elvis to the fall of Nixon. ) Either you accept Hanks in this part and go with the movie's seriocomic sense of whimsy, or you don't (we didn't)--but either way it's a long journey, filled with digitized imagery that puts Forrest Gump into a wide variety of backdrops and real-life events. Based on the (more satiric) novel by Winston Groom. Oscar winner for Best Film, Best Actor (Hanks), Director, Film Editing, Visual Effects, and Adapted Screenplay. Panavision.
