The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness ★★★½

It is a well done and exciting film in the right measure. The film fulfills its role of making you happy when "happyness" comes to Chris. Will Smith's performance is neither melodramatic nor forced, he could easily have delivered a more exaggerated performance to thrill audiences, but he managed to find the perfect tone for the character. His scene celebrating a conquest in the crowd is beautiful.
