Pursuit of Happyness (money)

Pursuit of Happyness Scene













I feel the Pursuit of Happiness is a must see film for everybody I think you would have to be a very hard nut to crack not to be moved emotionally at some parts of the film, and the acting is faultless

It is based on the true story of a man named Chris Gardner and the low part of his life in the late 70's


Will Smith plays 'Chris Gardner' a Salesman that is struggling to keep his head above water when his wife leaves him and he is left with his son and then his luck gets even worse.

After a chance meeting with a stock broker Chris decides to go after an internship with a major stock brokerage firm,
But there’s a catch there is no pay for six months during the internship and he'll be competing with 20 other ambitious men and only one permanent position,

Chris knows if he gets the job he can make a good life however for the next six months he will have to work study and try and somehow find money to pay rent while looking after his boy.

His life hits its lowest point when he can't make the rent and becomes homeless with his son.
and Chris has to somehow try and excel in his job during the day and find a roof for him and his son at night.
Will Smiths real son (Jaden Smith) play his son in the film and his performance is superb and he is looking like he could be a big star in the future.

The undertone of the film is quite capitalist some could call it the 'Pursuit of Money' but Chris Gardeners main motivation is to try to guarantee the financial security of his family and it goes to show that when life deals us a bad hand some we have a chance to change that hand though sheer determination and self belief.


And this film is so well acted it's one not to miss.

this movie was fantastic.one of the few that made me cry jd.i watched it 2x sa sinehan ug sa hauz.la ko kapalabi mn gd ug cry sinehan so we rented it & I cried & sobbed jd. nalisang kadjot akong bana oi.

indeed it's the happiness of our family matters most. good health & a couple dollars as saving would be enough as long my love ones are all in perfect shape...
