Hollywood movie The pursuit of happiness is the typical American inspirational movie searching American dreams. Though it had not won an Oscar, the movie won the highest box office. The movie adapted from the autobiography in the same name by Chris Gardner, a famous back a American, an expert in investment. In the story, he tells his hard times form the salesman to a successful manager, including his wife‟s betrayal, bankruptcy, homeless and other sufferings. All difficulties have not defeated him. He always maintains optimism with his sun and struggles continually for his won goal. At last, he wins the success and gains the happiness. It is directed by Gabriele Muccion.

Characters There are mainly three characters: Chris Gardner , Christopher, Linda . The protagonist is Chris Gardner. Chris acted by movie star Will Smith. Christopher acted by Jaden Smith Development of events

Chris Ghana is a salesman. He works hard, but overall no way to make a better life at home. His wife, Linda, can not endure the pressure of supporting the whole family and left him, leaving her 5-year-old son, Christopher . He not only suffered the dead-end down, but also became a single father. Chris has only 21 dollars and could not pay the rent, so he and his son were thrust out of the apartment. Chris finally got the chance

to practice at a prominent investment company, however, there was no salary during the internship, and 90 percent of the people had no ultimate success. But Chris understood that this was his last chance, it was the only way leading to a happy life. No income, nowhere to go, all Chris had was the sensible son‟s unconditional trust and love. They were homeless at night, slept in shelters, subway stations, public bathrooms, and open spaces, they did not have food to eat in daytime and had to live on the dole. He was frustrated with poverty, but with regard to his son‟s future and his own beliefs, Chris believed that: only if he works hard enough, happiness will come tomorrow! God helps those who help themselves, Chris eventually becomes a successful investment professional. My views on this film

After the move, I thought of many things: we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equally, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights ,that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness .

At the beginning of the move, after Chris has sent Christopher to the kindergarten , he saw a wrong word on the wall ,and said the famous sentence : There is no „Y‟ in happiness, the only thing we can do is striving for our own happiness voluntarily. Just like Chris do.

The silly scene of taking a bus was a part of Chris Gardner‟s life , in the movie, Chris Gardner, a poor father, who had his wife left him,

because she could‟t handle her life without financial security. While Chris was selling medical equipment to doctors, she decided get away from her poor family . Although under great pressure, Chris chose to stick it out and fight for what he known he can do, for him and for his son. He is strong in spirit. Whatever barriers he meet, he just continued his work and never stopped running.But it looks like that god likes to play tricks with him, he had gone through more hardships than others before the final success .

I think it is really a good movie. We are unique and just hold a dream and do what you can do, and do your best. D on‟t ever let somebody tell you that you can‟t do something .If you want something, go and get it. We should believe that “Everything is possible” .The moral of the story is that: don't let anyone convince you to give up on your dreams. The Pursuit of Happiness concludes with a caption that tells us what happens to Chris after the end of the movie.

The Pursuit of Happiness is really an excellent movie. After watching it, I can‟t calm my heart down for a long time. There are tears on my face, but smile in my heart. I think Chris is a good example for all of us, just be optimistic and go to realize your dream.
