This week, I want to share with you one of my favorite movies. I don’t know I many times I watch Forrest Gump in my life, but I think it’s a crazy number. I just saw it a few days ago. That’s why I want to talk about that …
This film is a dramatic American comedy released in 1994. Tom Hanks plays the role of the main character, Forrest Gump. Robin Wright plays Jennifer, the oldest Forrest’s friend, and his lover. In this movie, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson and Sally Field also play main characters.
Forrest Gump relates the turbulent story of the United States between 1950 and 1980 through the eyes, and the experience of Forrest Gump, who is the main character.
Forrest didn’t have an easy life when he was a child. He was always persecuted by other children because of his mental and physical troubles. However, he succeeded in his life. He became a Football champion, he graduated for a university, he was a soldier during the Viet Nam war, a winner in ping-pong on a military team, a remarkable marathon winner, a shrimp boat captain, and a billionaire. Even if he was mentally challenged, Forrest do wonderful things during his life. He had a kid with Jennifer, her best friend when they were kids, but she died because of cancer.
I really like this movie because it’s surprising. I think that this movie shows us that everything is possible. We can all make our dreams come true if we want to. Forrest is a very endearing character, and all of the people he met are too. Also, I really like the film’s narrative structure. He is waiting for a bus on a bench, and he met different people to whom he tells his story. For me, Forrest Gump is a life lesson.
If you have never seen this movie before, I recommend it ! 🙂
