Directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Eric Roth, based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom, the film famously depicts several decades in the life of Forrest Gump, a slow-witted but kindhearted man from Alabama, who witnesses and unwittingly influences several defining historical events in the 20th century in the United States. It stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson and Sally Field, and won the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Hanks, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Visual Effects, and Best Film Editing.

It won many other awards and nominations too, including Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards, and Young Artist Awards.

In 2011, the Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

The film was an enormous success at the box office and became the top-grossing film in America released that year and earned more than $677 million worldwide during its theatrical run, making it the second highest-grossing film of 1994.

The soundtrack alone sold more than 12 million copies.
