Tom Hanks won a Oscar in protrayal of the "Forrest Gump" a film about a simple man who was thust in the spotlight. He sees events that are unfolding in the 1960's, with Vietnam, with Watergate in the 1970's.
Gump got into the shrimp business with advice for a war buddy who died in the Vietnam war. Gary Sinise who played his sargeant in Vietnam, whom Gump rescue, which later became bitter and reclusive, who much later he found his life though Gump's shrimp business.
There are two women in Gump's life, his mother played by Sally Field and Jenny, played by Robin Wright. Despite his IQ of 80, Forrest overcame his handicap. This film is an insperation for anyone who is willing to try. Director Robert Zemeckis has put together a memorable film.
A classic movie with a great soundtrack. You won't be sorry to have seen this, and you'll probably want to own it so that you can see it again from time to time.
