I’ve always thought Will Smith was a one dimensional actor; the Fresh-Prince of Bel-air persona. It’s rare to see Will Smith play a role in which he can display his talented acting.
Smith plays Chris Gardner, a struggling father raising his son as his life seemingly begins to fall apart. Gardner take it upon him selfs to raise his son alone as his wife leaves them. Gardner’s life could be a textbook account of Murphy’s Law, as anything that could go wrong does go wrong.
Gardner’s display of heart and persistence makes this movie very inspiring. In fact, it’s one of the better inspiring movie that came out in a long time.
