The Pursuit of Happyness is a 2006 movie starring Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith. In this film, based on a true story, Will Smith portrays Chris Gardner, a sales rep who hits hard times, ends up homeless and somehow gets his foot in the door as an unpaid stockbroker intern. Gardner keeps his homelessness secret from his co-workers, to the point of lending his wealthy boss $5 that Gardner can scarcely afford to lose. The real-life Chris Gardner, who told his story to the television show "20/20" and later wrote a memoir about his year of homelessness, initially thought Will Smith was a poor casting choice, but was persuaded otherwise by his daughter, who admired Smith's performance as boxer Muhammad Ali in the 2001 film "Ali." The Pursuit of Happyness received positive reviews and Smith ended up receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor and a Golden Globe Award win in that same category.
