Forrest Gump

Perhaps one of the most beloved American films of the last 25 years, "Forrest Gump" tells of a simple man from Alabama who is present at the century’s most important moments, including the March on Washington and the Vietnam War. Along with his best friend Jenny, he lives an extraordinary life. The film, starring Tom Hanks, went on to win six Academy Awards and filmed throughout the United States. But the scenes in Savannah continue to draw visitors to iconic locations in the historic city.
