My Most Read Piece: On Jenny from ‘Forrest Gump’ (1994)

I am always pleased to discover, when I look at my blog stats, that my opinion piece on the character of Jenny from Forrest Gump is consistently my most read piece. It was written on a whim upon re-watching Forrest Gump after not seeing it for several years, and discovering that many others who have seen the film think that Jenny is a terrible person.

I feel sadness for the character of Jenny, and for what she has gone through in her short life. I have often wondered if viewers would feel differently if the film was seen from Jenny’s point-of-view; would we be more sympathetic with her actions, and of her treatment towards Forrest?

I am very pleased that my most read blog piece concerns a female, and on International Women’s Day, I’m delighted to beable to share it again with my readers. The piece can be read here; Misunderstood Film Characters: Jenny from Forrest Gump. Please let me know your thoughts!

Happy International Women’s Day 2017!
