“The Pursuit of Happyness,” directed by Gabriele Muccino is a film which I found myself greatly admiring. It is inspired by a true story and is about a man named Christopher Gardner who heavily invests his savings into portable bone density scanners, believing that they will be a great success and will support him and his family. However, they do not sell well as they only give a slightly better picture than an x-ray at double the price.
