The Newport Public Library will show the film “Forrest Gump” at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13.
This 1994 film is based on the 1986 novel by Winston Groom. Tom Hanks stars as Gump, a slow-witted, but kind-hearted man who witnesses, and in some cases influences, some of the defining events in modern U.S. history. Other stars include Robin Wright as Jennie, the love of his life; Sally Field as his mother; Gary Sinise as his commanding officer in Vietnam; and Mykelti Williamson as Benjamin Buford "Bubba" Blue, his ill-fated Army buddy who is familiar with every recipe that involves shrimp.
