This movie is about as perfect as you can get. It is fascinating seeing this simple man make his way through some of the more turbulent times in American history. But with how innocent Forrest Gump is, he doesn't feel the gravity of all of the important events he is a part of. Tom Hanks is perfect in the lead role and there is not an actor in a supporting role that I can find fault in their performance. Sally Field, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, and on and on and on. The cast was amazing. I never miss a chance to catch this when it is on TV and it continues to be my favorite movie of all time.
