Event Description:

Forrest Gump is a 1994 film based on the 1986 novel by Winston Groom. Tom Hanks stars as Gump, a slow-witted but kind-hearted man who witnesses, and in some cases influences, some of the defining events in modern US history. Other stars include Robin Wright as Jennie, the love of his life, Sally Field as his mother; Gary Sinise as his commanding officer in Vietnam; and Mykelti Williamson as Benjamin Buford "Bubba" Blue, his ill-fated Army buddy who is familiar with every recipe that involves shrimp. The film won six Academy Awards, including Best Actor (Hanks).
