Today i have seen the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" starring will smith.It is an impressive movie and the story is a great one.It is emotionally powerful movie.Will Smith did a terrific job.
The story is about an ordinary man's journey againstinsurmountable odds to reach his goals.It is a real life story.
The real life man is Chris Gardner.He had a bad childhood and seen his mom only at the age of 25as she went to jail twice.He was abused by his step father.

He was stuggling with his small kid(in the movie,the kid is a bigger kid whereas in real life,gardner's kid was less than a year old).He touched a very low point in life where he was homeless.
