Forrest Gump (1994)
Simple man, simple message, endless insight into life
I'll keep this short and simple.
Forrest is a simple man that doesn't ask much out of life and ends up living what some would call the luckiest life in the history of cinema. Except it isn't.
Dig a little deeper and you'll find some very simple yet profound truths. The most important thing in life are the relationships we have with others, not the things that we accomplish or obtain. And Forrest loses almost everyone that is important to him throughout the course of the movie. He's a simple man, but he knows what love is.
On the other side is Jenny, who's entire story is summed up when Forrest says the deceptively profound "sometimes I guess there just aren't enough rocks." For her scars, there weren't.
Watch it again. Dig a little deeper. Then you'll come to understand why this is considered a timeless classic.
