The Pursuit of Happyness
Title: The Pursuit of Happyness
It’s all uplifting and filled with joy, and “Do your best, and believe in yourself, and don’t let anyone put you down!” coupled with “I am providing for my family even though it’s tough” and “I LOVE YOU DAD!!” and “I LOVE YOU TOO SON!!!!!”
Plus, Will Smith. Yum.

Will Smith stars in the inspirational true story of Chris Gardner, a San Francisco salesman who’s struggling to make ends meet. When his girlfriend Linda (Thandie Newton) walks out, Chris is left to raise their 5-year-old son Christopher (Jaden Smith) on his own. Chris’ determination finally pays off when he lands an unpaid internship in a brutally competitive stockbroker-training program, where only one in twenty interns will make the cut. But without a salary, Chris and his son are evicted from their apartment and are forced to sleep on the street, in homeless shelters and even behind the locked doors of a metro station bathroom. With self- confidence and the love and trust of his son, Chris Gardner rises above his obstacles to become a Wall Street legend.
