The Pursuit of Happyness – Review

The Pursuit of Happyness is a rags-to-future-riches story of exceptional perseverance starring Will and son Jaden Smith. After an erroneous investment into a large stock of bone density scanners, Chris Gardner’s (Smith Sr.) life starts spiraling down when he discovers that his investment is hard to sell and is barely making ends meet. Chris’s life really hits the pits when wife Linda (Thandie Newton) leaves him and he is left with his son Chris (Smith Jr.) and no money. Chris’s inspiration for success comes in the form of a six month internship at brokerage firm Dean Witter, where he is accepted but to his dismay finds out that it is unpaid and his chances of selection are one in twenty. During this period Chris is forced to live in shelters, toilets and dodgy motels as he struggles to keep himself and his son happy and inspired.
