The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness ★★★★½

The Pursuit of Happyness was extremely impressive. I’d heard it was good, and I can verify that it definitely lives up to the hype. Will Smith gives one of the most real performances I’ve ever seen. You really understand the guy’s situation and feel for him. Even his son, Jaden Smith, is surprisingly good despite being like 8. Basically all the acting in the movie is top-notch. 

It’s also a very moving, emotional movie. It deals with some extremely rough situations, but it manages to find the optimism within them. They really pull it off with the beautiful writing and strong performances. The Pursuit of Happyness is a movie everyone should watch sometime in their life.
