Synopsis

Suite à un grave accident de sport dans une piscine, Ben, devenu tétraplégique incomplet, arrive dans un centre de rééducation. Il fait la rencontre d'autres handicapés (tétraplégiques, paraplégiques, traumatisés crâniens), tous victimes d'accidents, ainsi qu'un handicapé depuis sa petite enfance. Entre impuissance, désespoir et résignation, dans la lutte quotidienne pour réapprendre à bouger un doigt ou tenir une fourchette, quelques-uns retrouvent lentement un peu de mobilité tandis que d'autres reçoivent le verdict du handicap à vie. Malgré tout, l'espoir et l'amitié les aident à supporter leurs difficultés.

In 1981, Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks), a man with below-average intelligence, watches a feather fall from the sky at a bus stop in Savannah, Georgia. As he sits down on a bench, he removes a copy of The Adventures of Curious George from his suitcase and places the feather inside the pages. He introduces himself and begins telling his life story to strangers who sit next to him on the bench, recounting his childhood in Greenbow, Alabama. As a child in the 1950s, Forrest (Michael Connor Humphreys) had to wear leg braces for which other children make fun of him. He lives with his single mother (Sally Field) in a very large house outside of town, which they rent rooms to travelers. His father apparently left and he never knew him. Despite his limited mental capacity, Mrs. Gump tells her son that "stupid is as stupid does" (which he later uses as a retort when called "stupid") and also assures him that he is no different from any of the other children. Forrest is admitted to public school despite his IQ being below the cut-off, but only after his mother agrees to a one-night stand with the principal, Mr. Hancock (Sam Anderson). On his first bus ride to school, Forrest is rejected by nearly all of his peers except for Jenny Curran (Hanna R. Hall). He and Jenny become best friends, and he helps her hide from her abusive, alcoholic father. One day, while fleeing from bullies, Forrest's leg braces break apart and he discovers that he can run very fast. A few years later, Forrest inadvertently runs onto the field during a local high school football match and catches the attention of Coach Bryant from the University of Alabama who is scouting for players. Forrest attends the university on an athletic scholarship and becomes a college football star, earning him a spot on the College Football All-America Team and a trip to the White House to meet President John F.

Tandis que leur père a annoncé qu'il quittait la maison, et que leur mère en recherche d'emploi a accepté un stage à Montréal, Léa, Adrien et leur petit frère Théo, sourd de naissance, partent en vacances en dernière minute en Provence chez leur grand-père Paul qu'ils n'ont jamais rencontré. En effet, Paul et sa fille sont brouillés depuis 17 ans, et il n'a jamais été rendre visite à ses petits enfants. C'est leur grand-mère, Irène, épouse de Paul, qui les emmène sans prévenir ce dernier. Dès leur installation, le choc des générations se fait ressentir entre ces ados citadins et connectés, et ce grand-père de prime abord psychorigide et arriéré. Au fil du temps, les petits-enfants découvriront chez leur grand-père, que derrière ce personnage bourru se cache une personne pleine de surprises, ancien hippie et motard ayant parcouru le monde entier avant de se retirer et de cultiver des oliviers. Les vacances ne s'annonceront pas si désastreuses que cela, entre les moments en famille et les rencontres et premières amourettes au village, le pizzaiolo pour la jeune fille, les belles touristes suédoises pour le plus grand. Quant au tout petit, il n'aura d'yeux que pour son grand-père, et ce malgré ses fêlures et son net penchant pour l'alcool.
