The Pursuit of Happyness.

A must watch movie based on a real story. It is about Chris gardener and his struggle to achieve happiness.  Chris invests his family's savings into a bone scanner which proves to be a white elephant leaving him and his family with financial issues. Chris's wife leaves him to settle in new York, but he has his son with him. Chris then earns an internship as a stock broker where he has to juggle between his work, find a home to live and also take care of his kid.
The entire movie shows Chris's willingness to accept his situation and determination to achieve his dreams. At one point, when he barely has money and is homeless, Chris does not reveal his situation to his co-workers and tries to figure out how to solve his problems. This was I think the best part of the movie, it was very inspirational.
Also trying to fix one of the broken bone scanner machine, and studying his way to his internship exam, which selects only one out of twenty, shows how if one is determined, firm and focused, can achieve whatever one dreams.
A conversation between Chris and his son Christopher, where Chris explains how important it is to follow your own dream, is motivational. This is what Chris says to his son.
Hey. Don't ever let somebody tell you,
you can't do something.

Not even me.
All right?

You got a dream? You gotta protect it.
People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it.
You want something?
Go get it!
Period!
