More About Discussing Forrest Gump

Join librarian Paul Doherty, for this film screening and discussion about one of the most endearing films ever created. Based on the 1986 novel by Winston Groom, Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) is a simple man with a low I.Q. but good intentions. He is running through childhood with his best and only friend Jenny (Robin Wright). His 'mama' (Sally Field) teaches him the ways of life and leaves him to choose his destiny. Forrest joins the army for service in Vietnam, finding new friends called Dan (Gary Sinese) and Bubba (Mykelti Williamson), he wins medals, creates a famous shrimp fishing fleet, inspires people to jog, starts a ping-pong craze, creates the smiley, writes bumper stickers and songs, donates to people and meets the president several times. However, this is all irrelevant to Forrest who can only think of his childhood sweetheart Jenny Curran, who has messed up her life. Although in the end all he wants to prove is that anyone can love anyone. The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis. Rated PG-13.
