Will Smith's stirring moments - after successfully repaired a medical equipment by replacing damaged parts bought with money from selling blood. The equipment when sold would be their food expenses for a month.
We had heard the saying, "When you hit rock bottom, the only way is up". But that doesn't translate to real life when heart-wrenching true-life events of Chris Gardner (featured Will Smith) just seems to go under without seeing an end in his Pursuit of Happyness.
Yet pride and self esteem probably held him back from revealing his difficult circumstances to his co-workers and clients - he was homeless and penniless with a young child. He did not voiced excuses on the pretext of gaining sympathies or job leeways from anyone.
The show was not happy to watch. At one point, i thought the man would break. Often he was quiet, shedding silence tears in the night or in church. But never giving up, faithfully earnest in all that he does.
In a society where we expect one to be sympathetic or accommodating with our difficulties, Chris exposed our lameness and fairy-tale conjecture that success is a surety with hard work; especially after you had made some big sacrifices. Hard truth was, nobody owns you a living.
Go watch this 2006 American biographical film that may shed some lights in our pursuit of happiness. And yes, Chris did finally caught up his happiness.
