Forrest Gump follows the eponymous character, a guileless but athletically prodigious Alabamian, through several decades of his life, as he witnesses and influences some symbolic events of the late 20th century in the United States. Based on Winston Groom’s novel of the same name, the film focuses on the first eleven chapters before skipping ahead to the end of the novel.

In what is arguably his most iconic role, Tom Hanks’ impressive performance as Forrest Gump gave us one of the most endearing, memorable and inspirational characters in film.

The top grossing film of 1994 in North America, Forrest Gump was nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, and won six, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. In 2011, it was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as a film with “artistic, cultural or historical significance”.
