The Pursuit Of Happyness Will Smith delivers a moving performance in this inspiring biopic.
Plot When his wife (Newton) leaves him, Chris Gardner (Will Smith) has no job, no home and a five year-old son (Jaden Smith) to feed. Salvation may lie in the internship programme at a prestigious San Francisco stockbrokerage — something he must study for while trawling the streets. Verdict An admirably unsentimental biopic with an excellent central performance, but it doesn’t impact as strongly as it could. Reviewed by Chris Hewitt
