a rags-to-riches tale about love, family, and pursuing the American Dream.
While the story is a moving tale about a father’s love for his son and working hard to achieve dreams, it is more than that.
is also a poignant portrayal of the problem of homelessness in our society.The ambitious salesman battles insurmountable odds to make himself stand out from his competitors in the hopes of landing the position.Smith and his real-life son Jaden bring an emotional depth to the characters they play.I guess that is why the film is titled Though we do learn what became of him, we never get to see much of the joy that comes from Gardner’s struggles.For this reason, the movie is not a feel-good picture that will leave you with the warm fuzzies.He seems to have a true understanding of the character’s emotional state and expresses it with ease.Newton also provides a noteworthy performance as Gardner’s wife who becomes so emotionally distressed she makes the difficult choice to abandon her child.Once his nagging wife Linda (Thandie Newton) leaves Chris and their son Christopher (Jaden Smith, Will’s own son), Chris realizes he has to make a change in their lives.While doing his mundane task of walking the streets of San Francisco, California to sell his machines, Chris happens upon a very nice sports car.Will Smith fulfills an unprecedented roll of Chris Gardner.Although my opinion might be a bit biased towards him because he is one of my favorite male actors, Will Smith inarguably surpassed my expectation for his character.
