      The Pursuit of Happyness (”happyness” intentionally misspelled) is unusually good, in fact I would say it is one of the best movies I’ve recently watched. Will Smith plays Chris, a poor man trying hard to provide for his family but not succeeding, for a long time.

      His wife is frustrated with their continuous struggling and is no longer supportive.

      When Chris tells her of his desire to


      try to become a broker, she responds with, “Why not a cosmonaut?” Shortly after that she leaves.

      Chris continues to take care of his young son Christopher (played very well by Will Smith’s real life son Jaden).

      Their situation goes from bad to worse; despite all Chris’s efforts, they are kicked out of their apartment, then out of a motel.

      They become homeless.

      However, Chris continues to ...


      • pursue his dream.

        When he is offered the coveted internship at a brokerage firm, he finds out that he is to work without pay; the only reward is being *possibly* hired full-time after months of working for free.

        Chris accepts it (there is no way I would, I’m not good at life’s lotteries).

        He works as hard as he can, and in the end he is the

        one chosen out of many interns to be offered the job.

        What makes the movie even more special is that it is based on a true story.

        Will Smith portrays the determined and loving father so well.

        I enjoyed watching every moment of the father-son interaction.

        And of course the story of trying to break the ever-tightening grip of poverty and eventually succeeding against all odds is very powerful as well.
