If you constantly think “I don’t have any brains, I’m sitting at the wrong place at the wrong time and doing all the wrong things” then the ‘Forrest Gump’ movie is for you. The movie is a real-life story, based on a novel of the same name by Winston Groom. The movie tells the story of Forrest Gump, portrayed by Tom Hanks, a kind-hearted man with a low IQ who unwittingly finds himself at the centre of many historic events in the United States during the 20th century.
Despite his challenges, Forrest’s innocence and pure heart lead him to achieve remarkable things, including becoming a college football star, serving in the Vietnam War, starting a successful shrimp business, and forming meaningful relationships. The film explores themes of love, destiny, and the impact one person can have on the world.

Wellton Academy is a conservative elite boarding school. John Keating, a young teacher, breaks the rules of traditional education and instils the spirit of recognizing grasshoppers, reading poetry and seeing the world from a different point of view. This unorthodox teacher teaches a group of spirited teenagers to dream with their eyes closed, tear out the pages of books and understand everything through feelings, the students call him ‘Oh captain, my captain.’
The teacher said, “Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” The movie expresses hatred against this whole modern education system. The movie must be seen once to justify the pain of dead poets who sat inside the cave at midnight and cry alone.
