Last night I saw the film, ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness’ for the first time. I’m aware Will Smith is a great actor and it was interesting to see his real son play his son in a movie, especially in such an emotional role. I’ve been hearing great things about the film since it first debuted in theaters a while back.
The film captured the emotion in the characters which made the roles very believable. My only problem was that at the end of the movie, I found myself wanting more. I felt like “that’s it…?” Things also seemed to move quite quickly. First he didn’t have rent, then he had to move to a hotel, then he’s homeless, now he’s gonna be rich! The details moved as swift as I had just explained them. Nonetheless, it was a pretty good movie. Perhaps all the hype had me with high expectations.
