“Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get” says the charming and optimistic Forrest Gump. In spite of a confessed below average tested IQ of 75, Forrest’s endearingly innocent approach to life places him at many milestones of US history. Set in the second half of the twentieth century, the epic timeline of memories takes you on a ride through Forrest’s eyes; from teaching Elvis to wiggle, to abandoning his leg-braces and learning to run, university football, Vietnam, his encounters with JFK, Lyndon B. Johnson, and even lending a hand in exposing Nixon and Watergate, and of course more and more running- Forrest’s story will take your breath away…
