Zemeckis, an undisputed master of film technology, shows off an equal aptitude for vivid storytelling.

Contrasting Forrest's unassuming innocence with the upheavals and rancor of the times, the film is a wisely goofy commentary on the stupidity of smartness.

Manages the difficult feat of being an intimate, even delicate tale played with an appealingly light touch against an epic backdrop.
