Dir. Robert Zemeckis. 1994, 142 mins. With Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Sally Field. The slow-witted Forrest Gump floats through his life—and a tumultuous period in American history—somehow showing up as a bit player in one iconic moment after another. One of the most acclaimed and successful films of the past twenty years, and the focus of intense critical debate, Forrest Gump is both a technical marvel and a compelling blend of comedy and drama.
