Pursuit of Happyness
This is a typical feel-good movie, but the most appealing part of the movie is the fact that it is based on a true life story.
Cliched as it may sound, for me the take-away from the movie is the dialogue between Will Smith and his son, when they are playing basket ball. Will Smith at first discourages his son from pursuing basket ball. However, he realizes his mistake soon afterwards and asks his son NEVER to listen to people when they tell you something cannot be done - because people cant do things and hence they tell others it cannot be done.
So true - never let people judge you. Trust yourself, give life your best shot, and wait for things to fall into the right place :)
