The film tells the story of a boy who was born with a poor condition and made a successful comeback. The film tells the story of forrest gump“s past through the time waiting for the bus at the bus stop， which shows that： forrest gump”s life has never stopped， passers-by not only witnessed his life， but also made his life. Forrest gump and his childhood friend Jenny are both faced with a poor living environment since childhood. Forrest gump has been bullied by his classmates because of his IQ problems， and Jenny is desperate to change all this because of her bad family. The differences in their personalities make them destined for separate paths of life. Forrest gump finally runs out of a bright field because of his indomitable attitude to life， while Jenny falls and falls on the road to pursue her dream， even abandoning herself. Although she finally returned to the side of forrest gump， but still because of infection with the virus early death. This contrast adds a lot of layers to the film“s appeal. The person who impressed me most was not the hero， forrest gump， but the one who lost his legs in the war -- lieutenant Dan. It is no exaggeration to say that he is a man， a soldier”s offspring who once cared so much about dignity and honor， after losing his legs in the war， finally came out of his mental disability. That“s one of the reasons it”s so good.
