Film: The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
Written By: Steve Conrad
Directed By: Gabriele Muccino
“If you want something, go get it. Period.”
Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith star in the iconic film about a man doing everything in his power to provide shelter, safety, and love for his son. Without summarizing the entire film and ruining it for those who haven’t seen it, the quote above has always been a favorite part of the film. It authenticates the fact that as long as you are persistent, anything is possible. At the end of the day, man is capable of doing anything and there’s nothing stopping you from achieving your dreams – not even the fact that there may not be a roof over your head. As one of the most beautiful films of 2006, the story does an impeccable job of reminding viewers that where there’s a will, there’s a way. And if you’ve seen it, revisit it. In our personal opinions, it’s one the greatest things Will Smith has done in his career.
