    I think love can turn to bitterness (which is basically "love that doesn't quite know how to cope with rejection"), but authentic love [and not necessarily talking about romantic love] persists even in the face of rejection. Otherwise it wouldn't really be love. Level of commitments can change based on acceptance of reality (i.e., "You don't want to be with me, so I won't try to force myself into your life as some form of misguided love"), but you can still value someone and do things for their benefit and be open to later engagement if they change, even if they reject you.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    When they showed the trailer I didn't want to watch it - a story about a mentally challenged person can't be happy right? I was so wrong. It was simply sad but happy at the same time. And it makes people live in the moment - live in the moment by being happy for all the little things that happen for him. And how amazing it is that we as viewers feel worried for him but he - the one who goes through it all - seems happy and probably is. We simply think too much the movie told me.

    Tis a fine film.

    But now, like a plague upon Egypt, I shall introduce controversy into this thread!

    Forrest Gump beat both Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction for Best Film that year at the Oscars!

    Was it the right choice?!

    It's a movie that I would say is a perfectly fine winner in a number of other years, but that year, I SAY NAY!

    The guy who wrote it is a real human cheeseball factory. If it weren't for the good casting and acting, it would have been a real shitfest like all of the others (Benjamin Button, etc.,.) A high-concept gimmick of a film that turned out to be tolerable because of the humanizing effect of the actors.
