Biographical drama details an on-again, off-again transient salesman's struggles with life and fatherhood.
Adapted from the true-life memoirs of a once-downtrodden man turned successful entrepreneur and motivational speaker, The Pursuit of Happyness enamors viewers with the story of Chris Gardner, an intelligent yet embattled salesman reeling from a life savings-exhausting failed purchase of portable bone density scanners who must tackle the dual challenges of abject poverty and fatherhood as he attempts to redeem himself as a stockbroker.
Review by Marilyn Kenny (posted on 2-Jun-2008)
I recently re-watched "The Pursuit Of Happyness", and I'm glad I did. The movie is heart-wrenching. Will and his son Jaden Smith are excellent in their roles, as the woe-begotten father and son. From the first scene you will root for success for Chris Gardner in every bad situation that life throws at him.
The entire movie is one battle after the other to solve the problems that are inevitable in his life.
How he finds the strength to go on is what makes this movie worthwhile. It's a spirit-lifting movie.
