This is about movie review.Yes,this is The Pursuit Of Happyiness.
Because our teacher demand us finish the movie review.—— Foreword.
In fact ,I have seen this movie before class.I frist met it when I was a senior middle school student.But I have get more impressions then before.
In the movie,the leading role of The Pursuit Of Happyiness,Jeffersons Declaration of Independence words about happyiness kept recurring to Chris Gardner.Chris hardly work from everyday morning to night,but still couldnt make a charge.At last,his wife cant endured and left away,just leaving him and their five-year-old son.That is to say,Chris become a single father.
Even worse is,Chris no money to pay for the rent.And he was failed with his career.They become homeless.They slept in anywhere.But Chris never gave up,just for his son and his belief.He still strongly believed that happyiness would come one day if he worked hard enough.
At last of the film,Chris was succeed.But everyone know that too diffcult and hardly.
I think everyone know this is a inspired story.And Im moved.But in this movie,the most impress me are two things about Chriss love to his son.and his strong faith towards life.After that,I learn one thing that if a person has a strong faith in himself,nothing will impossible.
The movie《The Pursuit of Happiness》is a story about that a father never give up and succeed in the end.
In the movie the father told his son that if you have a dream you should protect it and never give it up.It impressed me a lot.No matter how hard the life was,the father never leave his son,his family or his brief behind.Even they had to spend the night by living in the park or a public toilet.The movie taught me a lot about the sprit of never give up and insist.After watching it ,I learned that catch every chance what I meet and be active to the life.And I also learn that one has to strongly believe in himself,no matter how difficult the situation is,but of course,hard-working is indispensable.“Think,tough life experiences,always make a great person!”
If youve ever been poor, this movie may be hard to watch. It depicts poverty in America in gut wrenchingly accurate ways. Ive been as poor as Chris Gardner, and, like him, Ive been poor among very rich people in the Bay Area while trying to work my way up.
Chris Gardner is a loving father and failing businessman. He is chosen for a competitive internship at Dean Witter, a stock brokerage. The internship, which offers Chris a very long shot at a better life, doesnt pay any salary. Chris has to live without a salary for six months while risking just about everything for that long shot gamble.
Chris is really smart. He can solve a Rubriks cube in minutes. But, hes poor. Poverty, like an octopus, keeps trying to suck him down to the bottom, and make him stay there.
His car is towed. His wife walks out on him, leaving him with a five year old son. He is arrested for unpaid traffic tickets. He becomes homeless. He has to rely on a homeless shelter.
All this while, he must appear for work in the morning in a suit and tie, and be ready to charm some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the Bay Area. These people take wealth so much for granted that two of them stiff him for cab fare.
Having lived through similar experiences, I cringed throughout this movie. My stomach hurt. I winced. I cried. I hugged my knees to my chest.
The movie is very accurate, but painful to watch. I hope a lot of rich people, who think that they understand poverty, see it.
This movie will be politically controversial. First of all, it doesnt touch the race issue with a ten foot pole. For example, when Chris appears to stiff a taxi driver for fare （it was really the rich white guy who failed to pay）， the taxi driver never uses the “n” word. In real life, I think he probably would have.
Is the movie afraid to talk about race, or does it not want to? I dont know, but I know that some will protest the movies not shoving race in the movie goers face. Im not one of those people. The movies approach to race — treating it as almost incidental — worked for me. As a poor white person, I can tell you that poor white people face the same obstacles Chris did.
Second, does the movie sell the message that if you work hard, you will succeed, no matter what, and does that message tell the truth about success in America? I think that the movie is open to interpretation. Some will see it as an indictment of poverty in America. The scene of carefree rich people driving past the line to get into a homeless shelter is pretty devastating. Other people will become angry because they believe that the movies depiction of hard work leading to rewards, in some cases, is too facile. I disagree, but thats what youll hear.
Third, is this movie meant to chastise black men who abandon their children? Chris is a role model exactly because he moves heaven and earth to be a good father to his son. This will be debated back and forth.
The movie has a big philosophical statement to make, that has been lost on many reviewers, for example, Richard Schickel in TIME.
Chris is shown running throughout the movie. Remember the title of the movie: “The PURSUIT of Happiness.” Chris places emphasis on “pursuit.” Jefferson, when he penned the Declaration of Independence, did not promise Americans happiness, but only the right to pursue it. Chris says, at one point in the movie, paraphrase, “I am happy right now. It is a fleeting moment.” We experience happiness in eyeblinks. The rest of the time we, like Chris, are chasing after it.
”The Pursuit of Happyness” is a simple inspirational movie.It is not pretty actors,no fancy pictures,no touching music,but can also attract you read on law-abiding,because it has good enough story,plain but not mediocre!
Two of the film places the novel,though intentionally set,but that is not offensive,not far-fetched,pregnant with meaning.
First:When Chris (Will Smith plays) to see graffiti in the “happyness” spelling error,he said these words:There is no y in happiness,There is i.(y or Why).This line is extremely clever setting,it also aims to express through the entire film.Yes,there is no happiness in the why,the only others only their own happiness.Why blame others than their own happiness is meaningless,only rely on their own can be happy.
Second:when the movie started,Chris was in the crowd jammed the streets to push forward,in the smiling faces in only his bewildered,stood helpless with.And towards the end of the film,Chris was in the same place,look left to meet the emotional tears and applause for his rallying.In the calendar through suffering,sorrow,abandonment,abjection,helplessness,despair,after Chris with patience,hard work and attitude of never giving up in exchange for part of his life,the good old days.So in the moment through the probationary period,Chris is happy.
