What a film!,
This review is from: The Pursuit of Happyness [DVD] (2006)  (DVD)
We've just purchased and watched the film for the first time. I was a bit dubious at the beginning but unnecessarily so as this film really is superb!
It portrays a young man, who despite having so much working against him, never gives up pursuing his ambition. Will's son, who plays his son in this film is excellent too and the whole film was utterly convincing and hugely motivating too in that it highlighted what is possible if the will and determination are there - as such the film really is an inspiration.
Yes, we needed tissues too although it's not by any means a weep-throughout type of film.
I can highly recommend it and we will definitely be watching it again.
