Forrest Gump, 1994 

“My mom always said life was like a box of chocolates.
You never know what you're gonna get." -Forrest Gump

Released 25 years ago, Forrest Gump tells a story of an intellectually disabled man with an IQ of 75, portrayed by Tom Hanks. A modern fiction that was primarily amusing with its wit and intelligent plot earned a resounding $678.2M during its theater run. It won a sweeping 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Hanks.

The movie opens with Forrest sitting on a bench with a briefcase and a box of chocolates. In the entire film, he narrates his incredible life story, 30 years’ worth, at the local bus stop to anyone who happens to sit next to him. It starts with a series of flashbacks, from childhood to adulthood.

He managed to be part of every significant event in American history, survived them all by sheer luck, or by just staying true to himself by applying lifelong values taught by his mother.

He has two prominent influencers as a child, his mother, played by Sally Field, and the love of his life Jenny portrayed by Robin Wright. Later on, Lt. Dan became a lifelong friend he encountered in his stint in Vietnam when he joined the US Army.

The park bench scenes were filmed at Chippewa Square in Savannah, and the solid bench is now in the Savannah History Museum. Forrest Gump shows that a park bench is a beautiful place to meet new people and tell them about your unique life experiences.
