Movie Summary:
It’s 1991 and Chris Gardner (WILL SMITH) is a self-employed businessman who makes commissions selling portable bone density scanners to doctors and hospitals. While the business was once booming, it no longer is, thus meaning his wife, Linda (THANDIE NEWTON), must work double shifts just to help them make ends meet. That creates tension in their marriage, leading to her not being supportive when he decides to reinvent himself by getting an internship at a brokerage house.

On the same day that he meets his possible future boss, Jay Twistle (BRIAN HOWE), Chris also learns that Linda is leaving and taking their 5-year-old son, Christopher (JADEN CHRISTOPHER SYRE SMITH), with her. Chris won’t have any of that and says he’ll take care of the boy, a declaration that becomes increasingly difficult when they end up with no house, car, or money to sustain themselves.

Things get worse when Chris learns that his internship will be unpaid, meaning he’ll have to find another way to make ends meet while hoping that his efforts might help him land the coveted, single paying job with the firm. From that point on, he must overcome various obstacles and setbacks as he tries to do just that.

Comments:

At first when I saw the movie I really thought it was boring and not interesting. As I watch it until the end, I realized I was completely wrong. I found out that it was indeed a great movie that is worth my time. The movie have inspirational story, great cast/actors, and provides lessons about life.

It motivates me to live life with determination to accomplish my goals. In order to do that, I have to believe in myself…believe in God…100%! Believe in your power to make your dreams into reality.

Recommendation:

I highly recommend this movie for everyone to watch. It is worth watching!

Favorite Quote from the movie:

The conversation between Chris Gardner and his son Christopher.

Christopher Gardner: Hey. Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me. All right?

Christopher: All right.

Christopher Gardner: You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you, you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.
