The Pursuit of Happyness

Poster-pursuithappyness“Don’t ever let somebody tell you “You can’t do something” (…) You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period!”


This movie is the most inspiring movie that I have ever watched. Based on a true story of Christopher Gardner, the movie encourages us to work hard in order to pursuit a successful life.


Chris’s family starts facing a financial problem when his business, selling a device called “Bone Density Scanner, does not succeed because the device which he tries hard to sell is not needed importantly in hospital. The situation gets worse as the tax and rent-house debt increase but the income never get increase so that it makes Linda, Chris’s wife, decide to leave the family.

Being a stock broker is a dream job for Chris. When he gets the internship opportunity to become a stock broker, he has to struggle hard with his son, Christopher, because the internship has no pay and it takes a full-time job. In this part of his life, we will see how hard Chris survives for his life until finally he becomes a successful stoke broker.
