Forrest Gump

After the hike on Saturday, Sharon, Jack and I watched Forrest Gump as a HD rental on the Apple TV.

Released in 1994, the film was nominated for 13 Academy Awards. It won six, including: Best Picture; Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role [Tom Hanks]; Best Director; Best Adapted Screenplay; Best Film Editing, and; Best Visual Effects.

Watching the film was Sharon's idea and I have to admit that I was not initially enthused about the suggestion. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the movie. I have probably not seen it in 15 years.

Jack did not want to watch the movie, but was hooked from the first scene.
