the pursuit of happyness

Posted on January 21, 2007. Filed under: Family, Movies |

I have wanted to see The Pursuit of Happyness since I saw the first trailer way back when.

Brian and I finally made it tonight and it was so well done. I thought that the story was inspirational in the way that makes you feel like you really do have to go for what you want and determination and sheer will power are qualities that are the most admirable (at least to me). The main character actually reminded me so very much of my grandfather. His willpower, determination and intelligence brought him from nothing to a wonderful life that he built every piece of. I like to hope and to think that I share those qualities with him; that they are in some way genetic. I miss him so very much.
