Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is an ingenious inventor who has just created a bone density scanner. While the device works well, it is overpriced and only slightly better than existing products. Bankrupt, he decides to apply for a job as a stock broker; unfortunately the position requires a 6 month, unpaid internship.
Gardner's wife is unwilling to tolerate poverty during those 6 months, but his son (Jaden Smith) is unwaveringly loyal. Together, they are homeless on New York's streets while Chris trains for a career that may never become a reality.
The Pursuit of Happyness earned $307 million internationally, more than five times its budget. It was nominated for an Oscar, two Golden Globes, and a Kids' Choice Award; the picture won an MTV Movie Award and a Teen Choice Award.
