Forrest won. The scene where he finds out he is a father is, perhaps, Tom Hanks' best performance of his many many excellent efforts. I tear up every fucking time.

Now that I gave "The One I Love" five stars, I am having quirky but touching independent films shoved at me left and right.

Today I watched "Robot & Frank." Fantastic.

Frank was amazing, I really loved everyone's performance in that.
Haven't seen Robot yet.

Robot & Frank was such a pleasant surprise. I loved it.

I can't believe someone would ever want to re-watch a movie starring Victor Mature.

Robot & Frank. I thought they were two different movies.

Broken

Starring Tim Roth and an awesome young lady Eloise Lawrence.

I thought it was the wow. Just really beautiful, yet dramatic. Hard to explain, as so many good films are.

Do you mean Peter Graves asking the boy if her liked gladiator movies.
