Synopsis

Tom Hanks won his second Oscar in a row for his expertly sympathetic performance as the kind-hearted man-child who introduces himself with the line, "My name is Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump." Waiting for a bus, Forrest relates his amazingly eventful life story through a series of flashbacks that span thirty years of post-war American history. He lives through the Vietnam war and - thanks to director Robert Zemeckis' dazzling use of digital effects - crosses paths with everyone from former US President Richard Nixon to Beatle John Lennon.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
