Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump
is a Robert Zemeckis film that ingratiated itself in American culture with the fictional character of Forrest Gump. It's a sweet, inspiring and remarkable film with a passion for story-telling, a nostalgic soundtrack and an unforgettable performance from Tom Hanks. "Mama always said life's like a box of chocolates... You never know what you're gonna get." and "Run Forrest, Run" will live on as if Forrest's fantastic coming-of-age biography were true.

It's an American tale that expresses the Zeitgeist of each decade as Forrest makes a name for himself in college football, ping-pong, running, Vietnam and shrimp fishing... finding himself in the right place at the right time. His natural charm, simple innocence and sense of integrity see him through dark days as he traces Jenny, the girl of his dreams. Her life is something of an antithesis to Forrest's as she makes all the wrong decisions, flying by night and against the wind.

All in all, Forrest Gump is a touching, uplifting drama and classic piece of down-to-earth Americana... a must-see and a must own. With six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Director, it will remain an all-time favourite in your collection for many years to come. You don't own it!?
