      The Pursuit of Happyness is based on a true story. It tells of a single father struggling to raise his son in the Reagan era. Will Smith surely should be nominated for an Oscar for his role as Chris Gardner, a medical sales man, who lives from day

      to day and hand to mouth. In his attempt to escape his miserable existance he wins an unpaid training scholarship with a firm of stockbrokers. Though, he is dreaming of and working for a better life, his family are plunged into the financial abss!

      The real Chris Gardner, after years of struggling, became a self made millionaire!! This film is based on Chris’s own account and therefore, one wonders if he comes accross as too saint like!! On the other hand, he is left by his wife, played by Thandie Newton, to bring up their five year ...

      old son alone. This is actually Will Smith’s own son!! Perhaps, human nature makes us empathise with his struggle, more so than if it was a woman left alone with a child!! Anyway father and son gain a solid relationship moving from one rental apartment to another.
      MMM still saintlike!!

      Yet, The Pursuit of Happyness is a deeply political movie. It combines a genuine sympathy for the homeless with a message that the president may have said himself. You can become a millionaire if you pick yourself and keep on trying!! Well perhaps not those exact words!!
