The Simpleton As Wise Man: Tom Hanks As Forrest
People today view slow people as being stupid and not being able to do
anything without the help of others. Forrest Gump falsifies that statement.
Tom Hanks does a righteous job in this movie role. Forrest Gump proves
that slow people can be viewed as wise men. He tells his life story to
perfect strangers, but he does not mind. He tells the strangers about all the
adventures in his life, people he has met, and the places he has gone to.
He has met such stars as Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and the infamous
Governor George Wallace.
The movie starts out when he is at the bus stop waiting for a bus.
He?s just sitting there when a lady gets off the bus and sits on the bench
next to him. Forrest starts talking to the lady about how her shoes look
very comfortable. He says one of his Momma?s famous saying, ?You can tell
a lot about a person and their shoes.? Forrest Gump seems to have gone
through a lot in his life. Forrest offers solutions to different situations. He
does not let other people?s feelings toward him hurt him in anyway.
