The Pursuit of Happyness


The Pursuit of Happyness

tytuł polski: W pogoni za szczęściem

director/reżyseria: Gabriele Muccino

USA, 2006

"The Pursuit of Happyness" is a film based on facts, but it's also a great drama. The film had its premiere on the big screen on December 15, 2006; it was shot entirely in the USA. The director, Gabriele Muccino, was the creator of such films as "Seven Pounds" or "Last Kiss", and the screenplay was written by Steve Conrad.

The main role is played by Will Smith who doesn't need to be presented to anyone. He is accompanied by his real son who plays the role of his character's son. It's Will Smith who deserves the highest praise and congratulations for playing such a difficult role while giving away all emotions and all of himself in it.

Without revealing the entire story, the film is a tale of a single father deprived of his home after parting with his wife, and in search of a job. At the same time he has to raise his son, left by his mother in his father's hands.

I highly recommend this film for long boring nights because it's a must-have position in the repertoire of every cinema fan.
