About Hippie Jenny
In 1994, a feel-good comedy-drama movie “Forrest Gump” was released. It starred Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump and Robin Wright as Jenny. While the main story revolves around Forrest, a slow-witted but kind-hearted and lucky man from Alabama, the subplot often shades some light on Jenny, a sweet girl with a bad upbringing. Throughout her life, Jenny has been struggling to find herself and fighting a demon within her.
With that said, the movie is not only about the hopeful and optimistic Forrest, but it also portrays the real life struggle of a person who had been in traumatic experience through the character of Jenny.
