Virtue movie illustrates: Determination
The Pursuit of Happyness (2006) is a true story based on the life of Chris Gardner, an African-American man living in San Francisco who is troubled by a failed marriage, financial problems and the responsibility of raising a young son. He uses determination, along with humor, hope, love, happiness, and hard work as strengths to help him overcome his adversity.
In this inspiring scene, Chris, played by Will Smith, cleverly sends an important and touching message to his son (Will’s son in real life) about never letting anyone “mess with your dreams”. As Will says, “Don’t ever let somebody tell you…you can’t do something…If you want somethin’ go get it, period.”
