Forrest Gump story

A comedy-drama film, Forrest Gump is directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Eric Roth. It’s based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel by the same name. However, it has been noted that the film differs substantially from the novel. A story about a slow-witted, Alabama boy with leg braces who is encouraged by his mother to live beyond his disabilities, the film depicts several decades in the life of the innocent and kind Forrest (Tom Hanks) and showcases how he unintentionally influences several historical events in 20th-century US. It also showcases how Forrest reunites with his childhood love Jenny after having longed for her for many years.
