Hanks is Forrest Gump, who despite being mentally challenged, tried hard, is honest and places his trust in luck. He tells his life story to anyone who sits next to him at a bus stop, and the flashbacks follow Forrest and his good heart through some of the highlights of modern American history.Through the use of digital imagery, Forrest appears to interact in scenes with John F. Kennedy, John Lennon and George Wallace. "Life is like a box of chocolates."

Second, the cast. Tom hanks would win his second oscar for playing the title character and he deserved it(this is my favorite Tom Hanks movie). But the supporting cast is full of movie greats like Sally Field and Robin Wright, accompanied by some actors that are now household names, but at the time of this movie were just becoming known, specifically Gary Sinise who should have won awards for best supporting actor. Robin Wright plays Jenny in this film and is such a sympathetic character that you grieve for her moment and then grieve with her the next.
This movie won't fit into any genre, one moment it's comedy the next it's drama. It's just fantastic, it is easily in the top 5 movies of the 90s, maybe the best. I think it will be one of the films 100 years from now, people will still want to watch and walk away thankful they spent the time to watch it.
I'm not going to give a book report for you guys and go into details about the plot, not only do I personally hate reviews that do that, but in this case I find it hard to believe that anyone reading this isn't already familiar with the plot. But I will say the blu ray transfer is fantastic. Now I'm no expert on picture quality, so there could be some fine details that the videophiles are always talking about that I don't notice. But just using the "eye test" I didn't regret my purchase in the least. I had just bought the samsung js8500 4k suhd tv before watching this, so I'm not comparing it directly with the same hardware I watched the dvd on, but I think that watching on a superior tv would reveal more flaws if they were there, and I didn't notice any. The sound transfer also sounded great, albeit not on the greatest sound system. I'm using the vizio 5.1 wireless soundbar setup.
If you haven seen this movie yet and you're older than 16, then you have no excuse and I really don't know what to say to you. If you're just wondering if this transfer is worth your money, I'd have to answer with a resounding yes. Hope this helps.
It is the kind of movie that kids should see, even though some of the subjects it deals with are stark. Like child abuse, death, disability, retardation, war, drugs, sex outside of marriage, HIV.... It also deals with ideas that surmount the evils; which is why it IS important for children to see. How to make the most of what you are. How to keep trying when you want to give up. How to set goals. How to be positive. And so much more.
