Synopsis The magical story of Forrest Gump, a sweet-natured idiot savant from rural Alabama. As he goes down the road of life, mouthing pithy and quotable homilies, he encounters luminaries such as John Lennon, Elvis Presley and JFK. But all the while he can't forget one special girl from his childhood...Now the really good thing about meetin' the President of the United States is the food. My name's Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump! -- Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get -- Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks)Theatrical release: July 6, 1994. FORREST GUMP made more than $325 million at the domestic box office and more than $675 million worldwide. The famous, oft-quoted line said by Forrest Gump in the film: Life is like a box of chocolates, is a total reworking of the original line in the novel which reads: Let me say this: bein' an idiot is no box of chocolates. To make Sinise appear to be a double amputee, the filmmakers relied on a combination of computer artistry, a trick wheelchair that hid Sinise's legs from the knees down and a limber actor... Sinise did suffer a minor leg injury while making 'Gump,' ironically during a scene in which Forrest (Tom Hanks) carries him out of the Vietnam jungle. 'My inner thigh kept bouncing on his shoulder. It was like taking a jackhammer to it,' says Sinise. 'I developed a huge contusion and couldn't bend my leg to get into the wheelchair.' -- USA TODAY, July 7, 1994FORREST GUMP is a movie heartbreaker of oddball wit and startling grace......A strong sense of narrative coherence....Even more impressive is the use of special effects......An accomplished feat of cyber-cinema....Hanks's Forrest has an unerring sincerity and charm......There is magic in FORREST GUMP......A story rich in big laughs and quiet truths...The title character leads viewers through an accidental travelogue of American social history from the early 1960s through the present in this revisionist fable. Vietnam, desegregation, Watergate, and more are presented from the perspective of Tom Hanks's loveably slow-witted Forrest Gump as he finds himself embroiled in situations he can't quite comprehend. Hanks leads an excellent cast, featuring Robin Wright Penn as Jenny, Forrest's lifelong love; Gary Sinise as the irascible Lt. Dan, his Vietnam superior; Mykelti Williamson as Bubba, a shrimp-loving soldier; and Sally Fields as his devoted mother. Robert Zemeckis's emotional, heartwarming film garnered 13 Academy Award nominations and six wins, including Best Picture, Director, Actor--Tom Hanks, and Adapted Screenplay.FORREST GUMP is beautifully paced, with a surprising amount of time dedicated to the characters just drinking in their surroundings...
