Cast Away Crossroads

The final scene of Cast Away is one of the most noteworthy endings of a film in the early 2000s, with a long-lost package finally finding its way home, and protagonist Chuck Noland (played by Tom Hanks) finding himself at both a metaphorical and literal crossroads in his life. 

Film buffs are able to stand on the same spot as Tom Hanks, as marked by a red dot on the road, and recreate the scene in ways they deem fit. Since the filming, the dirt road has been paved over and windmills now scatter the plains.
