The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness ★★★½

It took me way too long to watch this movie and I'm so glad I finally did. It's so genuine and heartfelt - particularly through some very good writing and a phenomenal lead performance from Will Smith.

It really makes you feel like you've gone through all of the ups and downs with this guy so by the end you've earned that ecstatic feeling of joy. I challenge anyone not to be moved by that ending, even though it's pretty clear that's how it's going to end.

It's an incredibly inspiring story and one that will hopefully act as a much needed kick-up-the-butt to me in hard times in the future.

Just keep trying.
