WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILSON. It's a classic, it really is. This was Tom Hanks reuniting with his Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis and genuinely managing to replicate the success. Hanks famously took over a year off in the middle of the shoot to lose the weight; it works beautifully. And very few people could make just them, pottering around on a desert island engaging, entertaining and downright touching.
But Tom Hanks can, and he does. He even makes you care about an inflatable ball for f**k sake. If you haven't seen this sit down and prepare to weep; if you have, it's aged very well.
