1994 Winner of 6 Oscars - 8.8 Stars! Through the perspective of Forrest Gump (Hanks) an Alabama man with an IQ of 75, you see the Kennedy and Johnson presidencies, Watergate, Vietnam and more. It's a new and fresh perspective on historical events. The characters are well written, intricate and full of emotions. Hanks award winning performance along with Gary Sinise's Vietnam Veteran performance are must sees and you don't want to miss Bubba Gump Shrimp!! Sally Field also stars. Rated PG-13 and 2 hours in length.
