After Iris (Sally Field) divorces her wealthy husband, she becomes a housekeeper for Paula (Judy Davis) and Leo (Jerry Wasserman), a rich Maine couple. Paula is demanding and almost impossible to please, but when her marriage falls apart, she does not know how to handle the painful separation. Without anyone to turn to, the two women form an unlikely friendship, help each other cope with the hardships of divorce, and learn how to move forward with their lives.
Slow-witted Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) has never thought of himself as disadvantaged, and thanks to his supportive mother (Sally Field), he leads anything but a restricted life. Whether dominating on the gridiron as a college football star, fighting in Vietnam or captaining a shrimp boat, Forrest inspires people with his childlike optimism. But one person Forrest cares about most may be the most difficult to save -- his childhood love, the sweet but troubled Jenny (Robin Wright).
