Coffey 1 Kelsey Coffey English 1101 Mr. Pfeiffer 4 November, 2014 “Stupid is, as Stupid Does” Robert Zemeckis has shaped one of my favorite movies out of Winston Groom’s first  novel, Forrest Gump. Groom told the fictional story of an alienated man in the south as he goes  through life in the 1900s with heroism, happiness, and loss. If romance and comedy is not for  you, then you probably would not like this movie. If, like me, you find hardships easy to relate  to, this beautiful movie should have you crying from mixed emotions by the end. From people  teasing him because he was different to pursuing his love, this movie dares anyone who watches  it to not connect strongly with his character.  Forrest Gump represents Zemeckis’ most beautiful work as a director. Zemeckis also  directed Back to the Future and Who Framed Rodger Rabbit, but Forrest Gump takes on a more  serious tone. Following Zemeckis’ lead, Tom Hanks inhabits Forrest’s emotions and successfully portrays the character. Over the film’s two hours and twenty minutes, Hanks gives an award­ winning performance of breathtaking understanding and conscientious effort. Zemeckis is  somewhat of a special effects whiz and he proves this by putting Gump in random clips from  history, as he tells his story to strangers at the bus stop, we see him meet several presidents, and  he even helps Elvis Presley produce one of his most famous dance moves. While Forrest is at the bus stop in Savannah, Georgia, he strikes up conversation with a stranger over his box of  Coffey 2 chocolates. Forrest promptly introduces one of the most quoted lines from the movie, “Life is  like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” As Forrest tells his story, he  cycles through about four different listeners, some of which think he is making the whole thing  up, until he reaches the end of the adventure and runs to find Jenny (Robin Wright), a girl that he had loved since his first day of school. Because Jenny grew up in an abusive household, we see  her struggling to figure out her life while Forrest is just naturally living his. His adventures take  him through school, the army, professional ping pong and finally his promise to a friend of  shrimp boating. Throughout his story, Jenny arrives and disappears about three times as she is  trying to found out who she is. One day she asks Forrest if he ever dreams about who he is going  to be, Forrest simply replies “Aren’t I going to be me?” as if it was an obvious question. Forrest  was thought of as unintelligent by his peers, but he explains that he can “think real good” but  when trying to express himself, “it kinda come out like jello”. Following college, he joined the  army. After saving four lives in Vietnam, he is sent home to pursue his best friend Bubba’s, a  poor black man that died in the war, dream. Throughout the movie, there is no discrimination of  blacks. This is important because although the setting is in Alabama, Forrest does not treat  anyone different. Forrest shows his compassion when Jenny gives birth to his son and only tells  him near the end of the movie. In the very end, Forrest’s mother, and Jenny die, and Forrest is  only left with his son and his past experiences.  Zemeckis seizes the opportunity of portraying the south in the 1900s and helps us  understand most of what is going on during that time. Since this movie came out, people view it  as a must­see because of the compassion and tremendous effort that Forrest possess. Almost  everyone can relate to something in the story and by the end, you can’t help but feel attached to  Coffey 3 Forrest’s son, Forrest Junior. Forrest’s decisions and experiences ultimately gives insight to  whoever is going through similar things.  Works Cited Forrest Gump. Dir. Robert Zemeckis. By Eric Roth. Perf. Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary  Sinise, Sally Field, and Mykelti Williamson. Paramount Pictures, 1994.
