    What did they do to Winston Groom?
    They promised him a cut of the box office takings (I think 3%) and then tried to pretend the film had lost money so they didn't pay him, while Hanks and Zemeckis had a similar contract and got $40m.

    They also didn't even acknowledge him in any of the acceptance speeches.

    Yeah it's good, the ambiance is pleasant and the plot is simplistic in its complexity, with Hanks superb in his role.

    It's quite long, but it was worth watching.
