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.
An admirably unsentimental biopic with an excellent central performance, but it doesn’t impact as strongly as it could.
