"God loves a trier" is the red thread between all our November films - and what better way to start than with the ultimate try-it-all, the inimitable Forrest Gump? Always in the right place at the right time to live through the most memorable moments of the 60s and 70s, Forrest also manages to become a tennis table champ, run several times across America and run a profitable shrimp business.
"A movie heart-breaker of oddball wit and startling grace." Rolling Stone
"A dark and driven work, haunted by violence, cruelty and a sense of the tragically absurd." New York Daily News
Forrest Gump, Robert Zemeckis, 1994 (142 mins)
