Default Shrimp boat Jenny of FORREST GUMP



Shrimp boat Jenny of FORREST GUMP



This a very normal shrimp boat in southern of states,maybe there’s thousands of these type boats. Millions of fishermen use this boat work in Caribbean sea



for their live.


Forrest Gump is a 1994 American epic comedy-drama romance film based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis, starring Tom



Hanks, Robin Wright and Gary Sinise. The story depicts several decades in the life of Forrest Gump, a naïve and slow-witted native of Alabama who witnesses, and in some cases



influences, some of the defining events of the latter half of the 20th century.
The film differs substantially from Winston Groom's novel on which it is based, including Gump's personality and several events that were depicted. Filming took place in late



1993, mainly in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Extensive visual effects were used to incorporate the protagonist into archived footage and to develop other scenes.



A comprehensive soundtrack was featured in the film, using music intended to pinpoint specific time periods portrayed on screen. Its commercial release made it a top-selling



soundtrack, selling over 8 million copies worldwide.
Released in the United States on July 6, 1994, Forrest Gump was well-received by critics and became a commercial success as the top grossing film in North America released that



year. The film earned over $677 million worldwide during its theatrical run. The film won the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director for Robert Zemeckis, Best Actor for



Tom Hanks, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Visual Effects and Best Film Editing. It also garnered multiple other awards and nominations, including Golden Globe Awards, People's



Choice Awards and Young Artist Awards, among others. Since the film's release, varying interpretations have been made of the film's protagonist and its political symbolism. In



1996, a themed restaurant opened based on the film, and has since expanded to multiple locations worldwide. The scene of Gump running across the country is often referred to



when real life people attempt the feat.[citation needed] In 2011, the Library of Congress selected Forrest Gump for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as



being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."[2]

Too bad the length isn't 915mm by 305mm beam, for those who like bigger boats.
