Chris Gardner only met his father once, and he grew up in an abusive home. He made a promise to himself that no matter what, he would be a good father to his son. It's a promise he keeps, even when he and his son battle homelessness. The Pursuit of Happyness is his true "rags to riches" story of how Chris becomes a successful stockbroker. It's a great film with lessons on family, father-son relationships, perseverance, homelessness, poverty, and Wall Street.
