A man with a low IQ has accomplished great things in his life and been present during significant historic events - in each case, far exceeding what anyone imagined he could do. Yet, despite all the things he has attained, his one true love eludes him. 'Forrest Gump' is the story of a man who rose above his challenges, and who proved that determination, courage, and love are more important than ability.
The film spans some thirty or so years, and to bring life to the numerous eras and events featured Forrest Gump is blessed with some beautiful cinematography, great sound design and a tremendous soundtrack that is just overflowing with recognisable and iconic tunes of the times.
