Pursuit Of Happyness teaches you about never giving up.
The Pursuit of Happyness is a 2006 American biographical drama film based on Chris Gardner’s nearly one-year struggle with homelessness. Directed by Gabriele Muccino, the film features Will Smith as Gardner, an on-and-off-homeless salesman. Smith’s son Jaden Smith co-stars, making his film debut as Gardner’s son, Christopher Jr.
The screenplay by Steven Conrad is based on the best-selling memoir written by Gardner with Quincy Troupe. The film was released on December 15, 2006, by Columbia Pictures. For his performance, Smith was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Actor. The unusual spelling of the film’s title comes from graffiti on a wall that Chris sees near the beginning of the film. In the movie, “happiness” is incorrectly spelled as “happyness” on the wall outside the daycare facility Gardner’s son attends.
In Pursuit Of Happyness is beautiful film that will almost leave you in tears. Will Smith encounters a great financial struggle, becoming homeless. This film will demonstrate why you should never give up on yourself, and to not allow circumstances to destroy your dreams.
