Live in a small apartment, San Francisco, California, Chris Gardner and his wife, Linda with their 5-year-old son, struggling in their poorness. Actually CRISH is a Smart and talented man, but unfortunately, he’s only A salesman of portable bone density scanners and has invested the family’s life savings on it.

In Fact there’s indeed a lot of success story depicted on screen, where someone find failures and defeats in their life, missed opportunities, sure things that didn’t quite happen,then the story end by victories, but The way of “The Pursuit Of Happyness” presented is different than the other, I THINK it such a very memorable film, the plot it’s not corny at all, it also give us many thing to learn, it all feels real . But The film lays so many obstacles, somehow it make me do not 100% believe if it’s taken from a true story, but if “real Crish” Confess such thing, I realize that I have no reason to doubt it
