Filmed in 1994, I hadn't watched it since it originally premiered. It truly is a great movie! Full of life lessons and historical events woven into one person's life. Makes you believe that anything is truly possible, if you aren't aware that it may not be. Forest Gump doesn't spend much time talking himself out of things, he just moves forward accomplishing one thing after another, because he doesn't realize that the odds may be against him. With a loving, supportive mother, he thinks anything is possible. His mother's quirky, supportive advice keeps propelling him forward in life. He keeps telling people, "my momma always said, life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're going to get." Isn't that the truth!!
