The film entitled Forrest Gump is the screening of a novel written by Winston Groom The title role is played by Tom Hanks one of the best actors of our times who has won the Oscar prize for his acting Forrest Gump is a romantic warm and amusing story of a simple and not very intelligent young man whose life reflects the ups and downs of America in the sixties and the seventies The setting of this movie takes place in the small town Alabama and also in Vietnam when Forrest serves in the army The time period of the movie takes place around the 1960s and 1970s as Forrest is growing up The whole movie is seen through the eyes of Forrest Gump who describes events of his life and the ways they happened Forrest is a somewhat retarded but good-hearted unusual young men He becomes a star football player a soldier in Vietnam a successful businessman a ping-pong champion a jogger-hero and a shrimp boat captain He meets Elvis John Lennon and President Kennedy However there is one defining element in his life his love for Jenny Shes never far from his thoughts no matter what hes doing or where he is In my opinion this movie is nothing short of a masterpiece Brilliant cinematography great acting and a wonderful story are some of the reasons that this movie soared But the real appeal is in the title character brilliantly portrayed by Tom Hanks Moreover the music in this movie is incredible Its like hearing the sixties Few movies have made me laugh so hard and few have made my eyes so inclined to tear up As we watch Forrest Gump we remember to slow down and enjoy the little things in life We appreciate the importance of faith and love The film also reveals that one does not have to be learned or clever to achieve fame and wealth and that optimism
