It’s been almost a decade since the release of ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ and yet it is one such movie that sticks to my head as such an inspirational movie. The film dramatizes the true story of Chris Gardener’s extraordinary journey from homelessness to success as a stockbroker, all while supporting his young son as a single father.
The movie also has a very simple message of ‘Never give up’. Being evicted from their home and facing financial difficulties, the father-son duo faced numerous struggles everyday. Yet, the small bits of happiness they find, despite all advertises, provides a heartwarming plot for this film.
"Don't let someone tell you that you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you protect it. When people can't do something themselves, they're going to tell you that you can't do it. You want something, go get it. PERIOD."
