Pursuit of Happyness

Great movie. Will Smith really made you believe in his character and how he bore his travails with quiet stoicism, always requiring himself to soldier on for his son.
The decision to use a director from outside the US was a very smart move. he was able to tell the story of Chris Gardner truthfully without turning it into a major schmaltz-fest that an American director I think would have. It felt honest and truthful without trying to be a tearjerker. Don't get me wrong, You will cry. His honest portrayal of the difficult path is very refreshing in a Hollywood of ever increasing schmaltz and dumbing down.

Definitely worth the ticket price.
