The Pursuit Of Happyness doesn’t need any introduction. This movie even makes the hearts made of the hardest stone found on this planet to crumble to pieces and cry like a baby. There’s a particular scene in the movie: Chris Gardner and his son are taking shelter for the night in a public train station restroom rather than at a ‘homeless shelter’. His son is fast asleep on his lap and he thinks what he can do the next day. Suddenly there is a knock on the door and the person tries to unlock the door which is locked from the inside. Chris Gardner starts crying hard lamenting about his situation and how he cannot even provide a single night’s shelter for his son. If tears don’t start rolling down your eyes watching this scene, then I don’t know what can?
