Poster for Forrest Gump

Tom Hanks stars in this Oscar-winning dramatic epic from Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis. Forrest Gump, a not-too-bright country boy, has always lived by the teachings of his mama (Sally Field). Left to choose his own destiny, Forrest weaves through life stumbling on the most remarkable moments in history, from the Vietnam War to his numerous visits with U.S. Presidents. However, one thing still evades him: Jenny (Robin Wright Penn), his one true love.

Has the elements of an emotionally gripping story. Yet it feels less like a romance than like a coffee-table book celebrating the magic of special effects.
