Director Robert Zemeckis was one of the first to apply emerging special-effects technology to successfully insert our titular character into pivotal moments of late 20th century America. For its cleverness and gentle humor, this film endures as a soothing balm. Tom Hanks’ portrays an innocence special-needs teenager who, under the guidance of a fiercely protective mother played by Sally Field, develops into a more than self-sufficient man. Sprinkled throughout Forrest’s many adventures is woven a sweet love story between Forrest and Jenny (Robin Wright), his emotionally damaged childhood sweetheart who comes to realize what true love is. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
