20 Years Of ‘Forrest Gump’ Photo Celebration

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the premiere of Forrest Gump. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks and Robin Wright, the film chronicles the life of Forrest Gump, a simple man with a not-so-simple life. It’s a charming, entertaining, and emotional epic that will remain in my heart forever.

“I’ve never met anyone like Forrest Gump in a movie before, and for that matter I’ve never seen a movie quite like ‘Forrest Gump.’ Any attempt to describe him will risk making the movie seem more conventional than it is, but let me try. It’s a comedy, I guess. Or maybe a drama. Or a dream. The screenplay by Eric Roth has the complexity of modern fiction…The performance is a breathtaking balancing act between comedy and sadness, in a story rich in big laughs and quiet truths…What a magical movie.”

Roger Ebert
