It is wonderfully warm and funny story about Forrest Gump, a good-hearted young man from Alabama in the USA. He wins a medal for being very brave in the Vietnam war and meets the President of the United States of America. He becomes a footballer, a film star, a businessman and he goes into space. And his best friend is an ape called Sue! Forrest Gump is now a film, with Tom Hanks and Sally Field in it. Tom Hanks won an Oscar for the film in 1994. In its first eighteen days, the film of Forrest Gump took $100 million in American cinemas - more than any other film that Paramount Pictures has made before. Forrest Gump is an unusual man who does a lot of unusual things. Millions of ordinary Americans liked the film. They felt Forrest Gump’s story was also partly a story about themselves and about America from the 1960s to today. Forrest Gump lived the ‘American Dream’. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, you can be anything you want to be.
