Gisteravond gezien in onze huisbioscoop: The Pursuit of Happyness.
Wat een prachtige film met prachtig acteerwerk van Will - Gettin' jiggy with it - Smith en van zijn zoontje Jaden.
Ongelofelijk dat het verhaal gebaseerd is op ware gebeurtenissen. Het leert je ook wel weer flink te relativeren.
In 1981, Chris Gardner was a struggling salesman in little needed medical bone density scanners while his wife toiled in double shifts to support the family including their young son, Christopher. In the face of this difficult life, Chris has the desperate inspiration to try for a stockbroker internship where one in twenty has a chance of a lucrative full time career. Even when his wife leaves him because of this choice, Chris clings to this dream with his son even when the odds become more daunting by the day. Together, father and son struggle through homelessness, jail time, tax seizure and the overall punishing despair in a quest that would make Gardner a respected millionaire.
