The subject of this article pertains to the canon of the Forrest Gump film but not the novel.

A feather is seen at the beginning of the Forrest Gump film, floating through the wind to land at Forrest's feet. He picks it up and places it within his Curious George book.

Later, as he gives the book to his son, the feather falls out and floats away; as such, it serves as a bookend for the movie.


"I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time."--Forrest over Jenny's grave
